2 months gone all ready.....
Well is been two months since I started TY and so far I haven’t regretted doing TY. I am really enjoying everything that we are doing. We have done so much since we first started ad here is still so much left to do.
In the second week of TY both of the classes had social development day. Each class had a whole day each which was spent in the library. The aim of this day was to develop socially and make new friends and get to know the other people in your class. I was not in school for this day but I heard all about it when I got back. I heard that they talked about different colours and what colour best describes a person and all that kind of stuff. I was told that it was a good day and well worth doing.
The week after that it was time for the TY bonding trip to Carlingford. And again I was not able to go to this because I got sick on the Sunday before we were due to leave. But again I heard all about it on the Wednesday that I returned to school. This trip was to give people the chance to bond with each other and get to know everybody in the TY year group. I heard that there were lots of fun activities such as high ropes and other cool activities. I wasn’t too disappointed that I couldn’t go when I saw how tired everybody was when they all got on Wednesday for or results. I would have liked to have gone but hey if you’re sick then you’re sick.
On Monday the 20th we had our first mini company workshop in Mass. This was a really fun day and was very enjoyable. This day was spent in moat theatre in Mass talking about mini company and different mini company ideas and the competitions from past years. I good day was had by all because when we were finished we made our way down to mc Donald’s to our lunch while we were waiting for the bus to arrive to take us back to school. This was the first day that we were really introduced to mini company and what we would be doing and all the general information about it. It was a really good day and I had lots of fun.
The Friday of that week we then had our annual fun walk. It was mean to be n the Wednesday but it got cancelled due to bad weather. This year we did things kind of different. We were not allowed to dress up because it was costing too much money but instead we wore a t-shirt that was the colour of the year. TYs as usual were yellow. We had to make up a performance to show to the judges before we started off on our walk. We made up a dance to go along with the song reach for the stars by s club seven. We had great fun making this dance and it was really enjoyable. At the end of it the judges would pick the best class out of the different year groups and in TY Amina won. The best tutor award also went to our tutor Ms OC. When we had finished our dance we headed off to the cross roads that we were appointed to help all he other students cross.
We then had a two week break of nothing but normal classes and some fun activities during class just the normal average days. Then on the 15th of October had a visit from two image consultants for a thing called colour me beautiful. This was for three classes and Amina were the first class to have the talk. The point of this was to tell us what type of colours suite our skin tone and hair and eye colour. We were each told what type we were if we were a soft clear dark etc. We were told this based on our eye and hair colour and the colour of our hair. We were then told what colours suit us and what good colours that we should wear are. I was told that I am a clear and that I should wear bright and vibrant colour and try to stay away from black. This was a very good day it was also very interesting and I really enjoyed it. I didn’t think that I would enjoy it but I was very surprised that I really did enjoy it well the part that I was there for I had to leave early for an appointment. But for the part that I as there for I found it really fun and interesting.
On the e20th of October we had our second mini company workshop. This means another trip to the moat theatre in Naas. This day was even better than the first day. This day was to really just hear about all the other ideas from other schools and every group got a chance to stand u and talk about their idea. Some of the other schools had some amazing ideas but I still really like the idea that we have. We were also given a talk on marketing and finance. When we were finished with our talk we then made our way to McDonalds again and once again we had some great fun. On the way home we had a double Decker bus and it was so fun. Roisin Patricia Kelly and I sat together at the table on the bottom of the bus. It was so fun Kelly and me kept annoying roisin because she was trying to sleep and we were laughing so much it was so much fun.
st of October we had a talk form this organisation called accord. This talk was all about relationships and how to solve problems in relationships. To be honest I was really sure if I wanted to have this talk I knew nothing about accord and wasn’t really sure if I wanted to go. But I did like I wasn’t not going to go. It was pretty good. We were told that we could talk about anything and the teachers would not be told unless someone was a risk of harm. This was really good because we were all able to talk openly and nobody had to worry about being judged about what they had to say. I thought that this was a very good talk and well worth it. We had the talk from 9.40 to 1.20 and it was a really good talk and I really enjoyed it.
On the 22nd of October was our last day before the school closed before Halloween mid-term. I had a really good day. We did some much stuff. It IT we done lots of fun stuff. Well we didn’t really do much we were just writing our blogs and we were all messing and having fun and we were taking lots of photos. Even Mrs L was having fun with us wearing the scream mask and getting into photos with the whole class..... Well most of the class.
So midterm is almost over and I really enjoyed it. I have done lots of stuff with friends and I have done stuff on my projects and for mini company. I am looking forward to going back to school because I like the general buzz of school. I will miss the not having to get up at 7 in the morning and just getting to go out with friends and stuff. But there is so much that there is left to do this year that I am looking forward to doing. an really excited for work experience in two weeks. :)
