There might be a travel ban stopping us from even leaving our counties in Ireland right now, but the super fit staff and students of Saplings Special School for Children with Autism and Complex Needs are going to walk all the way to the NORTH POLE! Well… kind of!

We are going to walk the 4,097 kilometre distance that it would take to get from the school in Kill, County Kildare to the North Pole, and we are going to do it over seven weeks. Our staff have their Fitbits, Garmin watches and Fitness Apps ready to go and our students will be making great use of the new walking tracks installed at the side of the school!
