Mindfulness Workshop – January 2018

For three weeks in January, we took part in a Media Workshop with Thomas Niblock. This resulted in a production called ‘Armagh Daily-Mindfulness Special’.  We worked with other pupils from St Catherine’s Grammar School, Armagh.

At the start it was quite nerve-wrecking working with young people we did not know however after the first session we all felt a lot more comfortable with each other. Thomas created an environment where it was really easy to interact with each other.

We really enjoyed the experience of being in front of the camera, having to work under pressure and remembering lines. It was also a privilege to work with someone with so much experience in journalism as Thomas Niblock. It was very rewarding to see ourselves on screen at the end of the project and it was really interesting to hear all about his job in the media.

This workshop has given us a lot of confidence and we feel this is something we may want to revisit again in the future.
