zoo 1On Wednesday, 14 March one hundred and two fifth years, accompanied by four staff members hit Dublin Zoo as part of their field work for their ecology module.

The girls studied both flora and fauna, although the latter was probably much more attractive as they learned about animals and their habitat. The trip was very successful despite the very poor weather on the day.

As field trips are part of some Leaving Cert subjects students have already visited a chocolate factory, the National Concert Hall and the IMMA and National Gallery.
