You may have noticed that the dates of these and other recent trips have had to be changed, in some cases at short notice. This is due to an increasing difficulty in our ability to secure transport for these trips and we have had to work with providers to find alternative dates on which we are able to secure transport. In particular, we had to change the date of our trip to Glendalough this week at short notice and our apologies that we did not communicate this directly to you. This was due to an administrative error on our part.
We are looking forward to an exciting and productive final few weeks for the TY class of 2022 and we wish to thank you once again for your support and cooperation throughout the year.
