Hello! I am Olivia!
This year, for our school tour, we drove to Clara Lara! It was one of my favourite school tours!

I walked to school at 8.45a.m on Wednesday, the fifteenth of June. The two 3rd classes and the two 4th classes went,the teachers of those classes and some other teachers. We left the school at approximately 9.15a.m. We got on the bus and I was partners with Eabha. We arrived at around 10.05a.m. My favourite attraction was ‘The Tarzan Swing’. The Tarzan Swing, was were  there was a rope hanging from a tree above, and a miniature, man-made lake was right in front of you. You’d pull back the rope and then cling on to it and jump off into the lake! It was so much fun I did at least 7 times! (I lost track!) my least favourite attraction was the water slide. It was immense! Water poured down it really fast and you’d sit on a board and go flying down! Even though it was only around ten seconds long, it felt like ten minutes! My face felt like it was going to fall off it was so fast! When it was over I thought I was going to vomit, but luckily I didn’t! I would not recommend this attraction.

Clara Lara is located in Laragh, county Wicklow.

We drove to Clara Lara on the fifteenth of June, 2016

We travelled to Clara Lara because we enjoyed it so much last year!

The water was freezing and I did mention that I thought I’d vomit, but overall I loved it!

The end!

The third and fourth classes and their teachers left at 9:15 am and drove on a bus to an amazing place called Clara Lara located in in a lovely county in Ireland called Wicklow.

We slid down a huge water slide and swung on an old rope over a long stony river.We ran over to a shop and bought two 99s for €2.50.

At the end of the day we had to get changed and when we where ready we would go back to school on the bus.We got back to school at 2:35 pm and we where just on time to go home.




On the 15th of June 2016 the 3rd and 4th classes of Divine Word N.S got to go on their school tour to Clara Lara Fun Park in county Wicklow. A school tour is when your class get to go on a tour to somewhere such as a farm. it is to makeup for all the hard work you have done throughout the year. First, everyone came into the classroom to check everyone was there. Then we gathered our bags and walked outside. We got onto a double decker bus with a kind bus driver sitting in the drivers seat. I sat at the back of the bus on the bottom floor. The bus drive was roughly 45 minutes. When we got there we put our bags at base camp. Then we were allowed to explore! There were lots of attractions everywhere! Such as a humongous treehouse, a small Tarzan swing, a bigger Tarzan swing, go-carts, canoes, boats and a water slide. My favourite was the boats. Aswell as going on the attractions, you could buy sweets in the shop. I bought two sugar- coated doughnuts. They were delicious

When we arrived at Clara Lara we played in the playground before getting wet. I played on the swings and slides. Then me and my partner Mya went and swung on the ropes afterwards we went on the canoes with Hannah ,Amy it was lots of fun!!! Amy Hannah Mya and me went on the go-karts together,after Hannah and I watched Amy and Mya  on the water slide ,while Amy and Mya were queuing Hannah and I went back to base and Hannah got chips. Later on in the day we got chips and candy floss.At 12:30 we got changed so at the end we wouldned have to try and get changed really quickly. Then Mya and I ate our lunch and talked to the 3rd and 4th class afterwards we played in the playground. I went down the the slide and got a little wet as the slide was wet. At one o clock everyone got changed. At 1:30we left  Clara Lara and went onto the bus to go home. Me and Mya got to sit at the front and it was fun to look out the window. When we came back we went home. It was a great day!!!((;;(



I went to Clara Lara Funpark on the 15th of June. It was a hot and sunny day when I walked to school. I walked into the classroom and sat down. Everyone was chatting and seemed quite excited. The two third classes and the two fourth classes were going. The bus came at 9:00. I felt happy and excited. My partner was Erin. We went up the bus stairs to the top of the bus. The bus drive was about an hour long. I looked out the window and saw the giant Clara Lara sign, everyone   cheered happily. We got our wrist-bands on and we were off. I jogged around the giant water park. There was canoes, a Tarzan swing, (a giant structure with ropes hanging down, which you grab and swing over a big pool of water) rowing boats, race-carts, water slides and some fun climbing activities. I had such a fun day. Even though I was wet and tired I was happy. We went home on the bus and got home at 2:30. The two third classes arrived before us. Me and Erin went home. I told my Mum how Erin and I had gone on a giant rowing boat. I also told her all the animals I saw on the way since Clara Lara was in Wicklow. What a lovely day!

When I came to school,I was really happy because I knew I was going to Clara Lara.It was really interesting and exciting.We left school at 9.00,we hoped on the white double decker bus.1hour later we arrived to Clara Lara. The first thing I did I ran on the Pirate ship and after that I walked back to base and had a tasty snack. Then I went to the go karts with my partner Donnacha. After that I went by myself to the big slide, it was hard carrying the boards because I had to stop 5 times to catch my breathe on the steep hill.It was kinda creepy on the slide but it was fun.We had 10 minutes left so we went to dress up.It was really sad leaving because I enjoyed it really much

On Wednesday we went to Clara Lara on the 15th of June with my class the other fourth class and third class with some teachers.We travelled to Clara Lara on a double decker bus.Clara Lara is in county Wicklow.We finally arrived at Clara Lara.The first thing I did was the Tarzan rope it was really fun but the water was freezing cold and the water wasn’t clear after that I wandered over to another Tarzan rope but this one you had to jump into water and swim over to where you could get out of water.Next I went over to a raft on the water I hopped onto it but then the raft started drifting away from the edge that was annoying because It meant I had to get off the raft  and go into the freezing cold water and walk on the hard stones under my feet.Suddenly I fell off the raft and twisted my knee after that I did pretty much nothing but I had lots of fun!!!

On the 15th of June I visited the Aras an Uachtaran with Charlie and Maeve. We left the school at 9:30am. Ms.Larken drove us there. We arrived in a parking lot. A bus drove me to a marquee while Charlie,Maeve and Ms.Larken got a bus to the President’s garden. When I arrived at the marquee a nice lady told me and some other children to find the tables with lanterns on it and sit on the chair with my name in front of it. The marquee was very large. 40 children (including me) carried lanterns to a stage to commemorate the 40 children who died during the 1916 Rising. The stage was huge and it had wooden boxes on it for us to put the lanterns in them. Michael D  Higens gave an amazing speech about how children know about what is happening in the world and want to change it. He also talked about what life was like 100 years ago. I ate fancy little cakes,chocolates and sandwiches for lunch.  After that ceremony I walked outside of the marquee. There were lots of fun activities. Maeve and I played a round of giant Jenga. There we’re huge inflate able footballs. There was an old fashioned carousel. Two bands were playing fun music. I took a picture with the president and Joe Duffy. Before we left we found a tank and an army truck. We took pictures in them. It was very fun. We had conversations with some army men. They were very kind. We hopped on the bus back to the parking lot at about 3:15. Ms Larken then took us back to the school. We arrived at 4:00. We got to go there because last year we attended an event at the Collins Barracks about the 1916 Rising. Michael D Higens invited us to the Aras an Uachtaran for a treat. I had an amazing day.

On the 15th of June 2016 I travelled to an excitingly wonderful place. It is called Clara Lara. It is in Wicklow.I drove there with my class, the other 4th class, the two third classes and a lot of teachers. The bus journey there was exhilarating and fun. When we arrived at the huge, beautiful place everyone ran off to have fun straight away. I ran to the small, cute treehouse with about 20 other people. Our school was the 1st one to arrive at the place. We were sent to Clara Lara because every year we go on a school tour!

Hi guys, First we arrived at school at 8:30. Then we got on the double-decker bus . On the way there me and my partner Aimee sat beside the cooling window where the sun was blooming in ☀️. The 3rd class came with us too . Our school tour was in Clara Lara this year Co. Wicklow . When we got there we took off our seat belts and started jogging out of the bus, and said ‘thank you’ to the bus driver. As I stepped out of the bus I felt the stones beneath my feet . We had to line up to get our wristbands on . We all got bright orange ones . It said ‘h’ on the back , because h standed for hotel , and when someone got lost they would call out hotel. So we made our way into Clara Lara . We walked through the stones until we came to a narrow bridge , so we went across the bridge to get to the other side . So when we got there the instructor told us some safety rules . When she was finished talking me and Aimee ran off ready to play. I went on the big water slide. We also went to the shops and I got chips and candy floss . When we were finished in Clara Lara Ms.Murphy lined us all up in two’s. We got on the bus and went up the steep stairs and sat at the front window. Then we arrived back at the school at 2:30I had a great school tour this year 

On Wednesday 15th of June we went on our school tour to Clara Lara in County Wicklow. When we got into school we sat down and got ready for the bus. We got into partners and lined up at the door. After what seemed like half an hour we were finally allowed to go outside. We all rushed in a messy line to the bus. When we all clambered on I tried to get a seat at the back. On the way we chatted contently so the time flew! It was about 10 o’clock when we arrived at Clara Lara. I was expecting it to rain but it was fairly warm. There were two 3rd classes and two 4th class going from Divine Word alone so it was very busy. Everyone dumped their bags in a small shack and ran off to go on all the attractions. I ran to a treehouse first . I was a bit apprehensive at first but I eventually climbed up and I loved it. Then I climbed a big rope net and I cut my leg. I limped over to the people working there and they put a plaster on my knee. I was grateful that my friends didn’t leave to go on the rides. After I was all sorted me and my friends ran to the rides. There was a delay when my friend Aobh’s flip flop fell off and we had to go and fetch them in the river. But we got them eventually and went on all the rides. We went on the Tarzan swing, The go kart, the kayaks and we bought donuts in the shop. We were in the middle of the lake when we had to go so we rushed back to base and changed. It started raining when we were in the bus so I felt lucky.We played Truth or Truth on the way back because you can’t really do dares on a bus. When we got out of the bus we went straight home.

Hi all readers,
Yesterday on the 15th of June my classmates and I travelled on a bus to Clara Lara fun park. In Clara
Lara there was a water slide in which to get to the top you had to carry a heavy board up a steep hill. There
was also a go kart with brightly coloured karts,a lake in which you could swing off a knotted rope into the
water and a lake for kayaking in. My favourite things were the go kart racing because it was as if you were
racing lawn mowers. And the lake with a Tarzan swing and the balance beam that seemed to be greased
with olive oil. On the way back from Wicklow it was hard to get a seat because of the to 3rd classes and
the other 4th class. I must thank Mr. Williams for arranging such a wonderful school tour.
