School Walk 2018! Bray to Greystones Cliff Walk

School Walk May2018 P1090808
NEWS / 24 May 2018

This year's school walk on Wednesday, 23rd May, was from Bray to Greystones along the cliff walk. All funds raised were for Focus Ireland and it was also part of Green School's efforts to get another Green Flag (Marine) for Stratford. Oonagh Delargy (TY) explains in detail.

The annual school walk took place on the 23rd of May with a few changes this year. The walk was from Bray to Greystones, a walk with some beautiful scenery and a little easier than previous walks. It was a lovely day and the sun shone the whole way, resulting in a lot of sunburn for everyone. 

We all enjoyed relaxing and eating ice-cream at the end but for me the biggest highlight was a beach-clean up which the Green Schools committee had organised. We had been saying we would do one for ages so it was really nice to finally get the chance to do it. Everyone donned gloves and grabbed some bags and we began to clean. We want to thank everybody who took part and we hope that it raised awareness among everyone and the next time you go to the beach you won’t forget to spend two minutes picking up some rubbish.
