Following on from the success of the TY Pop Up shop, the Transition Year students recently spent the day in the RDS at the National Design and Craft Fair. Yesterday, they went to Dun Laoghaire to see the comedy play ‘Psycho Spaghetti’ by Ger Carey, in which he gives a humorous adaptation of the workings of the teenage mind.
