Congratulations to former scout Shane Wharton who recently returned from the Beyond Endurance Expedition. The expedition offers TY students from around the country an opportunity to travel to to South Georgia, Elephant Island and the Antarctic Peninsula where and experience the History and incredible Scenery of the Antarctic .
Shane was one of a small group of lucky students from around the country chosen to accompany noted Polar explorer Pat Falvey on what can be described as the trip of a lifetime. Shane was chosen because of his experience in the Scouts.
The scouts have recently been visiting Atlantic Airventures (http://www.atlanticairventure.com) in Shannon. It hoped that the scouts will attend once a month (instead of their weekly meeting) and get to complete several of the air activity badges
