American Exchange 14/15

L2L Exchange - Ireland - Day 12 & 13



Hello all, we were up so early it was before the crack of dawn. We headed to Killary Adventure centre where we did a range of activities from climbing, to watersports, to a BOG run, yes BOG run. for our American friends it was a serious culture shock. we had so much fun and we were doing activities and playing games all night as a group.

Friday morning we were taken out to the Aran Islands where a few stomachs were as dodgy as the waves hitting the Ferry. On the island we rented bikes and cycled about and saw the beauty of it. We saw Dún Aonghusa a famous fort on the edge of the cliffs and then faced the last ferry home, where unfortunately again some stomachs turned.

There is no point in talking about the Airport as there were so many tears and it would be unfair to put up those pictures but we would like to thank everyone from parents, teachers, bus driver, and all those who dealt with the group throughout the trip.

Until next year.....

L2L Exchange - Ireland - Day 11


Today was the farewell dinner where we must thank all the parents for their great work and preparation of the fantastic food. We sat and ate as a big group, shared some pictures of the trip both in America and Ireland and then our American guests received a little token of appreciation from the school. a few tears were shed but that was nothing by comparison to the airport.

until tomorrow....
