Baltinglass TY Trip

TY trip to Baltinglass – September 9th 2015

TYC Aoife Dunne

Hi my name is Aoife Dunne and I’m a TY student here at Coláiste Bríde.  On the day of our Junior Cert results the whole of TY, along with out tutors were brought on a trip to Baltinglass in Co. Wicklow.

We left bright and early at 7a.m and luckily for us the weather was great! When we got there we were put into our class groups and my class, TYC, got to do Kayaking first.  Some girls didn’t take part but the ones who did got stuck in and had a great time, and only a few girls ruined their fake tan!!

We also go to do archery, rock climbing, zip lining and orienteering.  It was honestly the most fun I’d had in ages.  I felt that going on the trip was a great experience and really helped to calm my nerves about getting my results, as I’d say most girls would agree.

It gave me a chance to get to know my new class and to make some new friends.  It was definitely a day to remember and will probably be one of my highlights of TY!

The transition Year students have been extremely busy these last few weeks, betwwen getting soaking wet at Baltinglass and showcasing their creativity for the Bridge 21 Programme at Trinity College.

The activities at Baltinglass included canoeing rock-climbing, zip-lining, and archery.

From this, it is clear that our TYs have had a blast-off start to the year, and are excited to see what next awaits!
