Last night the parents of or America Exchange students prepared a lovely meal for all those participating in the Limerick to Limerick Exchange. Mr.Moore and Ms. Tobin were also presented with a copy of the History of the Limerick Township here in Philadelphia which will be displayed in Colaiste Chiarain, Limerick, Ireland. We would like to thank our friends at Springford for a fantastic stay, although it's not over yet! Roll on New York!!!!!!
24 5th year students representing Ireland at Euroscola in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. These students won this trip through their great work on the Ambassador School Programme last year. Coláiste Chiaráin piloted this programme for the European Parliament last year and are again taking part in the programme this year!
Our trip today was on a yellow bus which was very exciting for our Irish students. Our first stop was at Shady Maple, a gigantic breakfast buffet where students fuelled on all sorts of breakfast foods.From here we competed a tour of Amish areas learning about their culture and heritage. It was an interesting day.
