TY Future Leaders Trip to Croke Park

On Tuesday last our TY Future Leader class organised a trip to Croke Park for the Skyline and Stadium tour. As part of Events Month our group of Future Leaders are organising a host of mini events throughout April and one of these was to attend the holy grail of GAA that is Croke Park. Our students had a fantastic day out as they got to go on the skyline tour around Croke Park and see the views of Dublin City, they got to enter the main dressing rooms used on All-Ireland final day, got to run out under the tunnel and finally walk up the steps for the trophy presentation. It was a great experience for those involved and very well organised and run by our TY Future Leader class, well done to all involved.

Ty Trip to Kairos

On Thursday April 20th, 4A enjoyed a day at Kairos Recording studios in Maynooth where they made their own TV programme. Students took on various roles, producing and directing the show and also operating the cameras, sound, vision mixer and graphics. There was great teamwork shown as ideas were generated and a script was planned. All students agreed that it was a great experience and they got great insights into the TV production process.
