On Monday 7th and Monday 14th of December the TYs went to Foyle Arena in Derry to swim and rock climb. Every student had one week on rock climbing and one week of swimming. There was also two weeks on this at the end of November. Once we returned back to school we had to make Christmas wreaths with the materials we had collected from Culdaff.
