On Friday, the 27th of February the Transition Year students went to Causey Farm in county Meath. The day was filled with activities such as milking cows, baking brown bread, catching chickens, Irish dancing, and last but certainly not least, jumping in the infamous bog!
We departed the school gates on buses filled with excited students looking forward to the great day ahead. When we arrived we were split into different groups; some baked fresh brown bread in the kitchen, while others played traditional Irish instruments. We got the rare opportunity to hold new born lambs and it was a very sweet moment.
It's safe to say that the bog was the icing on top of the cake. Although we were hesitant to dive into the muck at first, we soon let loose and jumped into the freezing mud! While some parts were shallow, other students braved the deep depths and catapulted into the bottomless end.
Overall, it was really successful trip and everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was a great bonding experience for the whole year!
