Today Irish Exchange students visited Evans Elementary school founded by a historic Limerick Family. Our students were thrilled to meet the students they had been paired with. The Evans students had prepared a number of activities including the presentation of Limericks, choir recital and student interviews. It was a great day and a lovely experience for all involved.

Our trip into Philadelphia yesterday was really enjoyable. We started our day with a walking tour of the key historic landmarks in the city including the world famous Liberty Bell. We then ate at Gino's and Pat's popular for Philly Steak Sandwiches, Its safe to say no one went home hungry! From here we went to Reading Terminal Market and sampled some great food from across the world. Our last stop was the world famous Rocky steps completed with a race to the top. (The teachers won) Overall it was a fantastic day and we're looking to many more like it.
Niamh Briggs, Captain of the Irish Ladies Rugby team along with teammate Fiona Reidy presented Second year Coláiste Chiarán student Eimear Hickey with a signed Irish jersey.
Eimear sent a letter of inspiration to Niamh during her holidays saying how she was her role model and how she admired her. Niamh responded this week by organising a surprise visit.
Thanks to Niamh Briggs and Fiona Reidy who are such super ambassadors for sport. Todays surprise event was a lovely gesture, showed a real generosity of spirit and was a special surprise for Eimear.
