American Exchange 13/14

Day 3 - L2L


Today the students had the welcome breakfast in the school cafeteria. They were all served a traditional Irish breakfast. The choir sang and the trad group played some traditional Irish music.  The Americans then got the chance to look around are school and see just how different it was to theirs!

The Americans shadowed the Irish students for period 5 and 6 going to one language class and one super option. For the people going to Spanish class, Ms. Martinez had a selection of Spanish food for the Americans and Irish to try!

The students then left for Daly’s Hurleys where they saw the full process of how a hurley was made. They then got the chance to buy a hurley or some limerick flags and key-chains.

Then the students all went to Supermacs and all teachers and students played in the arcade and went bowling. They all had some food in Supermacs and then returned to their host families for the night.


Day 2 - L2L

Today the students spent the day with their host families. The American teachers were extremely lucky to see the Six Nations cup.

This was the day everyone was the dreading as it was their last day together until April. After breakfast they travelled back into New York City to do some last minute shopping! They then headed across town to Central Park, an amazing contrast to the city. While there they took the opportunity to visit the Lennon Memorial, identify parts of the park used in various films and to go ice skating.
Unfortunately the moment came for everyone to say goodbye. There wasn't a dry eye to be seen. However, they will be seeing all their new friends in April again. Their two weeks in the States was an amazing experience. The places they saw and the people they met will never be forgotten. They cannot wait for the return trip in April!
