Journey Of Mercy

This Summer two 2nd years, Aoibhe and David Joy accompanied their Mum on a trip to Madagascar to visit their Uncle who has a bamboo company set up in Madagascar. It was a trip of a lifetime and a real eye opener of how other people live. Their month in Fort Dolphin gave them the opportunity to experience a life they would other wise never know about and experienced how these people live. They both were a great help to these people and amazed how these people who appear to have so little in comparison to us have so much to give their visitors. On their 4 day trip from the capital they got to see the welcome these local people gave their visitors. Aoibhe and David donated items to them which they took with them. Congratulations to both students on their great work and for sharing their findings with those in the school.
