First years enjoyed a day trip to Causey Farm, Kells, Co. Meath with the School Completion programme. We had lots of fun baking brown bread, visiting the animals, and bog jumping!!
Our TY class went on a trip to Trinity College Dublin. When we got there we met up with 2 past pupils from our school who now attend Trinity. They brought us on a tour around the campus, we were brought around the museums and libraries. Afterwards we all went to a lecture hall where one of the Trinity Access team talked about how to get to college and what college is all about.
Our guest speaker was Detroit Slam Poet, Natasha T Miller. She came up and started talking about her career in a specific type of poetry called button poetry. She was really good and performed a few of her poems for us. As a class we all enjoyed her performance.
Later we attended a probability lecture by Katie Steckles as part of Maths Week. She talked about the probability in flipping a coin and in having the same birthday as someone else. Overall the day was good and a new experience for the TY group.
