Transition Year students really enjoyed their day of teambuilding with a recent visit to Causey Farm. The group travelled to Co. Meath for what proved to be a thoroughly engaging educational and cultural trip. They got stuck into each of the activities with great energy and enthusiasm. A bodhrán and Irish dancing session allowed the girls to find their rhythm, as they played along with traditional jigs, polkas and reels and perfected their steps to the Siege of Ennis. They had lots of “aww moments” as they got up close to the piglets, goats and llamas, followed by a spot of welly throwing. A visit to the farmhouse kitchen was next, where the girls prepared their own personalised pizzas, using a traditional soda bread recipe for the base. This was all before they took a tractor and trailer ride down to the bog where they learned about the geography and history surrounding them. There was slight hesitation when the bog jumping session began, but it wasn’t long before they were seeing who could make the biggest splat. Thank you to Mrs Benson, Ms Fallon and Ms Hanniffy who travelled with the girls. The day spent outdoors and getting back to basics was a great experience for all.
