Transition Year Activities in Ard Scoil na nDéise

Transition Year students really enjoyed two workshops they completed in recent days.
Transition Year Activities in Ard Scoil na nDéise

On Monday the 22nd of November Transition Year students in Ard Scoil na nDéise participated in “beditation” with Catherine Foran. We got an introduction to Chi, a Japanese form of meditation, this included lots of stretching. The beditation included a guided meditation by Catherine, while she burned incense and we laid on our blankets. This activity with Catherine was a really calming experience that was well needed after the chaotic year we’ve all had.

On Wednesday the 24th of November we participated in two team building exercises guided by Ger and Eoin from Eagle’s Flight. The first exercise involved a board game all about managing your resources and getting as much gold from the goldmine as you could. TYA and TYB went head to head to see what group could mine more gold while many unforeseen events occurred like the canyon flooding delaying us from reaching the mine and arctic blasts stripping us of some of our valuable supplies. In the end TYA surpassed the amount of gold mined by TYB by 13 bars. In the second event of the day TYB were striving to beat TYA and even the score. In this exercise we got to be more hands on while building a campsite. We had pictures from different angles of the site and only an hour to build it. Each student in the class had to finish their own site but once we were done we helped our classmates finish theirs. In a race against time TYA finished all of their sites in 52 minutes, TYB following shortly after at 57 minutes. This was a great bonding experience for us and we were glad to be able to have so much fun while still following government restrictions and rules.
