Transition Year Duck Push

For almost twenty five years the Transition Year students in Clongowes have made raising money to buy a piece of life saving equipment for Crumlin Children’s Hospital an annual goal. Equipment to date has included portable ultra sound machines for use with children with limited mobility and machines to help diagnose cancer patients more quickly.

Last June 30 students accompanied by teachers took to the road again pushing the Duck from Crumlin Children’s Hospital in Dublin all the way to Limerick. Before pushing the Duck across the country over eight days in June students also raised money through a whole variety of activities during the year. These ranged from mini companies and pop up cafes to coffee mornings, barbecues and washing cars, making use of a host of abilities, talents and skills along the way.

Over €70,000 was raised and this year the funds will go towards equipment used in treating patients with cystic fibrosis. The main piece of equipment is a 3.7mm diametre video bronchoscope made by Pentax which will allow doctors to identify problems more accurately.
