The astronomy class had a fantastic day visiting Armagh Planetarium. They explored the night sky and other planets in the dome theatre. There was fierce competition between students as they made rockets which they launched. Students also got the chance to chat with astrophysicists and explore the exhibition area. The trip was “out of this world”

The Food Module class enjoyed a cooking demonstration from Chef Gearóid Lynch proprietor of The Olde Post Inn and author of “My Gluten Free Kitchen”. Also, in preparation for the TY Christmas Cake Decorating competition students participated in a workshop with Brid Tervan, Pastry Chef in the Olde Post Inn. What an amazing opportunity for our TY students who thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
