TY Report October 6 2018

TYs

The TYs continue to be extremely busy. Last week saw them continuing with their self development course which takes place each Thursday morning.
Using mentoring workshops and peer-based conversations “Create the Great in You” aims to provide young people with a space to explore how communication, collaboration and creativity can be applied to develop both community and relationships.
The girls are both challenged and facilitated to openly explore and express their passion, identity and potential.
The girls will grow in confidence, enhance their interpersonal skills and be more empathetic toward their peers. The series of workshops will culminate in a presentation of certificates to the girls on October 19th.

They also took the time to attend a play in An Táin based on women’s stories from WWII.

This week they headed for An Táin again, this time to attend Ger Carey’s stand up comedy routine on the lives of teenagers today. According to his website “Ger is fascinated by the way teenagers are passionate about stuff. The way that there’s no in-between, grey area with them. The way they wear their hearts on their sleeves and their favourite bands on their T-shirts. He knows what makes them tick and uses this daily knowledge to amuse and cajole them.”

The aim of the show is to get teenagers to laugh at themselves and appreciate the differences of others. Our students certainly enjoyed the experience. 

The big news in TY this week is that the Musical Production Committee has been granted the rights for Mary Poppins. The girls are thrilled to be taking part in this venture. Auditions were held today and the parts will be cast in the next few weeks.
