Glendalough is the setting for today’s a 'Hike for Life' organised by Kildare Wicklow Education and Training Board (KWETB). Mr Burke and 10 prefects are representing Blessington Community College.
The hike involves students and teachers travelling to Glendalough and 'The Spinc', which is a trail that runs above the upper lough in Glendalough. The hike is approximately 10km in length but offers some dramatic and stunning views from the top. The group were blessed with some fine sunshine, which only helped to add to the exciting vistas on offer.
Schools from across the ETB are taking part in the hike, raising for Pieta House and the Wicklow Mental Health Association. 'Hike for Life' aims to promote positive mental health among young people.
