Overall reflection on my Transition Year Experience

This section is one piece of work which illustrates what Transition Year means to you. This piece can take any form you choose.
However, if it is a written piece it must be at least one typed A4 page.

You are free to choose the medium, or form for this item. For example it may take the form of a poem,song,drawing etc.

This item will be prepared in the final term.
