Trip to Belgium photo album
On the 19th and 20th November, 24 TY students accompanied by three teachers travelled to Belgium for a very bust two-day trip. On the first day we travelled to the historic city of Ypres and spent some time there exploring the city before visiting Tyne Cot Cemetery. That evening Luke Flanagan MEP, who had sponsored the trip, took our group for dinner in the Hard Rock Café in Brussels and presented one of the students (whose birthday it was that day) with a birthday cake.
The next morning we travelled to the European Parliament where the group had a presentation on the workings of the parliament. We had our lunch in the parliament before moving on to Concept Chocolate for a workshop. As part of this every student was given the opportunity to make and decorate their own chocolate.

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.
