Ski Trip to Andorra photo album
This year saw 49 students and 15 teachers hit the slopes of Andorra during the February midterm. The bus left the school at 11.30pm Friday 11th February and made its way to Dublin Airport for the flight to Barcelona. During the day both students and teachers had 4 hrs of lessons and took part in some questionable skiing! At night, we were allowed out to explore the town. On Tuesday the school graced the local award-winning pool and spa with their presence then hit the club on Thursday night, leaving Andorra with a bang. Many won prizes for skills and best comeback, as well as an award for keeping the party going...The last day was spent in Barcelona where the group took a quick sightseeing escapade followed by some last minute souvenir shopping. They then headed to the airport to the sound of Mr. Havlin and Mr. Humphries' favourite playlists. Students got to bed around 4am on Saturday, some on crutches but all alive and happy to be home.

Man Utd Trip 2015 photo album
On Saturday, 19th December, a group of thirty-two 1st and 2nd year students set off for the annual Old Trafford Trip. The result was a 2-1 win for Norwich City. While the result wasn't what was hoped for, the group made the most of their time in and around the ground after the game. They had an overnight stay in Leigh Sports Village before travelling to Walsall v Port Vale. As the group disembarked the bus at the League One Bescot Stadium, police questioned Mr. Havlin as to whether or not the tour was sponsored by Hollister. The group took time out of their trip to pose for a photo with former Blackpool manager and Sky Sports pundit, Ian Holloway before entering the ground. The result was a 2-0 win for the home team. The group then visited Cheshire Oaks Outlet for a bit of shopping before heading home. A big thank you to Mr. O'Kane, Mr. John Collins, Mr. Niall Havlin and Ms. Anita Doherty for making the tour possible.
(Ed. Well, that's another year without fitting in the long-promised Leeds match. They won, of course! But let's be honest, at the end of the day, the Man U and Walsall games threw up a couple of nice results. And we have to remember that it's all about the kids, who thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. The banter was good. "The funniest thing ever" happened at least six or seven times a day. But the burning question remains unanswered - "Who's Travis?"...That was the Man Utd Trip 2015. Might be nice to see a European game at Old Trafford next year. What you reckon, Mr. Humphries? I know Thursday night probably doesn't suit everyone...)
