What A Week

This was the week that we got right down to the ol' nitty gritty and started acting like an editorial group of journalists with an amazing radio show to put together.

I think the first reality smack of what we're actually doing here got to both me and the Upstart group.

Second Lot of Workshops-It gets good...


I think the most important lesson learnt from the past two workshops we've had was (as cliche as this may sound) that the youth are definitely not to be underestimated and marginalised as they have been.

 Or maybe we just have a really group of kids with their heads screwed on tight.

The First Meeting

To be honest I'm not quite sure who was more nervous and excited-Ross and me or the Upstart members. We came in not sure what it would be like with this new group of people. I do think it is safe to say that after the introductions were over there was a feeling that this was the start of something good.

The proverbial ice was broken with a game of "Guess who I am" and it was pretty much off from there. My personal favourite activity, though, was the free writing exercises about what we love and what we hate. This made us learn more about each other and was also quite revealing.
