Report by TYC
On Wednesday, 2nd October we all got on the bus to depart from the school at 10am. We headed to Moville then on to Greencastle.
The Foyle Hotel:
We arrived at the Foyle Hotel and met the owner and head chef, Brian McDermott. He gave us a talk about his experience in the food industry, the importance of food, food development and nutrition in the diet. He also mentioned how wellbeing and mindfulness is very important in everyday life. Brian is currently writing his third cook book. His last book 'Donegal Table' won the prize in China for the best cook book in the world in 2019. We then got back on the bus and made our way to the Moville Boutique Hostel.

What's the best wrong answer ever given by a student? Why do teenage Goths exist? In class, why is a pigeon on the windowsill so fascinating? Why do lads have to get to the back of the bus? What's it like to be in a double class with a teacher that wears tweed? These and many more questions were answered by Ger Carey as he used comedy to explore the weird and wonderful life of a teenager. Ger certainly got into the mind of the TY student - two hours of jam packed fun. Then a little detour on the way home and a quick visit to the Grianan of Aileach where Dessie McCallion gave the students a brief history of the fort. The views from the top were specatular. Great day all round and well done to everyone.
