The first TY cohort headed off to Rosscor on 21st October for their two-night Residential. Upon arrival the students were faced with their first challenge - making their bed, which required putting on a duvet cover and a pillow slip. Some were naturals while others were obviously first-timers. Beds made and it was off to get ready for activity 1 - kayaking and water trampolining. Day 2 Activity - bus drive to Mullaghmore where the TYs did pier jumping, swimming and jumping off a rather high platform. Ms. Farren was quite happy to observe and look after personal belongings. (Well someone had to do it!) Afternoon activity saw the TYs climb a hill although some did refer to it as a mountain - it was a small hill! After dinner all students gathered around the camp fire, singing, dancing and toasting marshmallows. The zipline in the dark through the forest was quite a scary experience, and one not to be repeated. Great bunch and a wonderful three days. Thanks to Sean, Shannon and Glenn. Also to the leaders in Rosscor and of course our wonderful chef.

On the 19th and 20th November, 24 TY students accompanied by three teachers travelled to Belgium for a very bust two-day trip. On the first day we travelled to the historic city of Ypres and spent some time there exploring the city before visiting Tyne Cot Cemetery. That evening Luke Flanagan MEP, who had sponsored the trip, took our group for dinner in the Hard Rock Café in Brussels and presented one of the students (whose birthday it was that day) with a birthday cake.
The next morning we travelled to the European Parliament where the group had a presentation on the workings of the parliament. We had our lunch in the parliament before moving on to Concept Chocolate for a workshop. As part of this every student was given the opportunity to make and decorate their own chocolate.
