Getting to the Hotel
We got onto a mini-bus to get there. On the bus
we chatted and listened to music, that’s basically
everything. It took us around 40 minutes to reach
our destination. The Challenge to Change, took
place in Tullamore Court Hotel. It was huge.
Standing outside the hotel, made us all really
Inside the Hotel
When we got to the Tullamore Court Hotel
we went to a room with our table and all the
other schools tables in it too.Our table was 6
ft long. We put our bags under the table and
set up our projects. After that we went to the
Presenting the projects
When we were finished our workshop, we talked to
people about our projects to people who came
around. We let them study our projects and when
they were finished we quizzed them on it. If they
got seven or more right they got a sweet.After that
we went around looking at other peoples projects
while others from our group talked about the
Half of the people went to workshops.
The other half stayed to present our project.
There were three types of projects. The green one:
Learning about trees, blue one: drumming and the
red one: Learning about water and how to save it.
The people who went to the green one touched
tree samples and read and heard about trees. In
the blue one, you basically played the drums, that
were played at the end of the day. Red learned
about how to save water and how people use it
There were a lot of other projects. For
example a project about LGBT, bees, sugar
and child labour. We really enjoyed it all.
Other projects gave out treats as well. Some
for free and some for completing a quiz
correctly. The projects were really good, but
I think we did a good job on ours.
Near the end of Challenge to Change we got
lunch. Lunch was either chips and chicken
nuggets or chips with sausages. Most of the
people enjoyed the food very much.
After lunch we went back to our table and
packed up all our stuff and waited for the
bus. Everyone was kind of sad about
leaving. When the bus came we packed the
projects into the back and off we went!
We really enjoyed our trip :)
