My favourite part of TY was the retreat. On the 6th Of January, Declan and Roisín came to our school for our yearly retreat. We started off the day by separating into two groups and we had to work together to make the shape of whatever letter that had been named. The group who were finished the fastest won. Next we sat around in a circle and passed around pages with our names on them. Everyone had to write down something about the person or a memory we had with them.  We tried to be positive and to put a smile on each other’s faces, which was lovely. After lunch, we meditated and talked about the day. I have been taking part in retreats like this one since First Year and I always them and look forward to them.  This was a great way to bond with my group, especially since so many new girls joined our school this year!
