St. Raphaela’s School in Stillorgan has been announced as the winners of a national competition to claim a class trip of 20 students and 2 teachers for one full week on the Camino de Santiago.

The students entered a competition on the Follow The Camino, Facebook page and have been campaigning tirelessly to get their whole community behind them to share their class photo on Facebook and propel them in to the winning position and onward to the Camino in Galicia, norther-western Spain.  

They came up trumps on the first part of the challenge; to win the competition.  Next part is to walk over 100kms in to Santiago de Compostela to gain their coveted pilgrim certificate as a souvenir of their achievement.
