As part of the Dundalk Youth Arts Festival, the new first year students of Coláiste Chú Chulainn took part in mindfulness and movement workshops with Tai-chi master Kalichi. Students practiced different breathing and movement techniques to help with their studies (And have lots of fun of course!). Many thanks to everyone at the Dundalk Youth Centre who organised the event!
