Like all of us, Mr. Bolger is getting on in years, but unlike the rest of us, who have retired to rather sedentary extracurricular activities, the ‘Badger’ continues to be a dynamo of action: in this case, literally ‘action’ as he led Third Years on their Action Project expedition into the wilds of Wicklow. Third Year student Sophie Lee reports back:
Last Friday the 3rd years did their CSPE hike action project which was for their Junior Cert.
The hike took place in Glendalough and was 10km long, with Nickolay’s selfie stick making repeated appearances along the way. Edwin constructed several useful weapons from recyclable materials en route and Mr. Bolger bravely scared off several mammals which emerged from the undergrowth.
The hike was in aid of Cycling Without Age, a charity in which elderly people are cycled around the locality by volunteers. The funds raised by Third Year will go towards a new bike for the charity.
Fortunately, no mishaps or casualties occurred even though it was Friday the 13th!
