Atlantic Youth Programme 

Scariff Community College Ty’s and Scoil Mhuire Ennistymon attended a virtual zoom call with the Youth Atlantic program. We really enjoyed this experience because we learned a lot about the ocean and sea life and how much we as humans depend on the ocean. They also touched on global warming and how much it’s affecting the PH of the ocean and the oceans ecosystem. Overall we enjoyed this experience and would recommend it to TY students in the upcoming years.

Darren Ward Fitness  Module 

Transition Year Students Complete their Fitness Module

The TY’s took part in an 8 week training program with fitness instructor Darren Ward. Darren’s workouts were both mentally and physically challenging but we were left feeling accomplished and motivated after every session. The workouts consisted mainly of endurance training, circuits and strength conditioning. At the end of the program everyone’s fitness and strength had improved tremendously and the students were satisfied with the results of all their hard work over the 8 weeks.    by Maeve Mc Faul

Wreath Making Workshop 

Last Thursday the TY’s were fortunate enough to attend a wreath making workshop run by Natalie. This workshop lasted just over an hour and was a very enjoyable experience. We were immediately drawn to the the GP by the festive smell of fresh pines. Natalie was kind enough to bring lots of Christmassy foliage and decorations ranging from holly and pine cones, to ribbon and baubles. Along with what we had brought in ourselves there was more than enough greenery to make our wreaths. This workshop was a creative and fun experience and was a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.

Yoga with Grace

There are  four weeks of Yoga with Grace, We have just completed the second week. The yoga consists of many different stretches and for the last twenty minutes we did a relaxing exercise that involved meditation, warm blanket and a yoga mat, this was really beneficial. We found Grace really easy to understand. Everyone has participated and has found the yoga relaxing and enjoyable so far. – by  Mia Mc Mahon
