Last Wednesday we went to Dublin to sell Holly for the ISPCC (Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children). We got there at ten in the morning and were greeted by representatives of the charity who told us what were going to be doing and why it is important. Over 1,000 children call in to Childline over the Christmas holidays.
             We chose a partner who we were going to be selling the Holly with. We each got a collection box, a box of Holly and a top with ISPCC volunteer written on it. Anna and I were selling outside Abercrombie and Fitch (it smells so good!). We volunteered from half ten until half two and then we got our lunch. It was a great day and I really enjoyed myself.

Road Safety Talk

Yesterday for a school trip we were brought to the RSA safety talk with other schools to show us the consequences of reckless driving and what we can do to prevent it. We got to walk around and ask at different stalls what they were doing as part of it. One school was there as part of their mini company to promote people taking taxis after a night out in the pub so there are no drunk drivers, I radio was there and a robot cop from America was also there. We were taken into a room where we were showed video's of crashes and there were people there to talk to us about the crashes.
           It was a really good and informative day out for all of TY.

So for the last few weeks instead of doing P.E. a zumba instructor has been coming in to teach us Zumba. Its been so much fun but really tiring its such a good way to get fit. We learn dances to popular songs and copy what she's doing. Some of the dances are so fun and upbeat I love it. I have also taken it up outside school with some girls from my class which is so much fun. I don't want it to end in school and go back to normal P.E. in school and I will definitely keep it up outside school.
