Our school is already involved in a "Cultural Exchange Through Writing" Project . In September 2013, 20 pupils aprox accompanied by 5 teachers from a school in Hamburg, Germany will visit Dublin and Birr for five days.
Our guests will experience two days in Dublin city visiting places of interest. The remaining three days will be spent in Birr & the surrounding areas.
Our guests will participate in Birr Outdoor Persuit Centre, visit Clonmacnois Heritage Site & Slieve Bloom Mts. On the final day, our school will exhibit the "best" of Irish music, dance, food,storytelling & sports. It will feel involve a community effort from our school,local GAA, musicians & groups catering etc.We feel that such an experience will lead to future visits by extended families & friends from Germany thus promoting the whole spirit of the Gathering Initiative.
