Longford students vying for Camino trip

Longford students vying for Camino trip

Students in Meán Scoil Mhuire Longford are in with a chance of winning the trip of a lifetime on the Camino de Santiago, after entering the EduCamino competition. 

The first ever EduCamino, specially designed for schools and students, was launched in 2013. It brings students on the last 100km of the Camino de Santiago to Santiago Cathedral and the tomb of the Apostle St James. 

An amazing, spiritual journey for all ages, undertaking the Camino will see the students become immersed in a new culture. They will also feel a great sense of accomplishment and confidence upon completion.

One school in Ireland will get the chance to win a one-week class trip (20 students plus two teachers) on the Camino de Santiago. Everything from accommodation and to breakfast, dinner and lunch is included.

The competing schools submitted a photograph to the competition, and the winning school will be the one who gets the most likes, comments and shares.

To like, comment on, or share the Meán Scoil Mhuire photograph, just log onto Facebook and search for 'Follow the Camino'.

Click on the 'Photo' tab and find the Meán Scoil Mhuire photograph. Then, like, share and comment as much as possible to help the girls win a dream week away in one of the world's most popular tourist attractions.
