Space Camp Easter Trip 2013

Boker Lads in Flight of Fancy!!
April 2013
Thirty students drawn from the 1st and 2nd years in Coláiste Éamonn Rís visited Brussels, Maastricht and Paris during their Easter Holidays from the 1st to the 5th of April. They were accompanied by their teachers: Mr David Byrne, Mrs Linda Scallan and Ms Niele Kavanagh.
This exciting excursion to the European Space Centre. Brussels, saw the boys travel to Outer Space on simulated spacecraft. The intrepid Boker boys zoomed through the darkness, passing by all the Stars and Planets. Other activities included the building and launching of rockets.
Outings during the trip included an exciting visit to the local Forest Adventure Centre, where the lads took part in outdoor pursuits, climbing rope bridges and whizzing across high wires. The chaps also visited the town of Maastricht in the Netherlands for a souvenir-buying trip. A visit to Disneyland, Paris, afforded the opportunity to parade with classic Disney characters and to fly high in the Star-Wars-themed flight simulator. Visits were made to Pocahontas' Indian Village in Frontierland, with its ochre-coloured pueblos.
Certificates of Participation were presented to the thirty lads by School Principal, Mr Michael McMahon, to acknowledge the hard work and good behavior of the students during the trip.
