Friday in Philly


On Friday we took a trip into Philadelphia. We first stopped at the iconic rocky steps and took some photos beside the rocky statue. Then we went to the mutter museum which is one of the finest medical history museums in America. We had the opportunity of seeing a piece of Einstein’s brain that was on display along with interesting medical artefacts, specimens and instruments.  Next we tried the famous Philly cheesesteak from Pats and then we finished the day at Philadelphia zoo.

School Day in Springford High!

On Thursday we spent the day in school where our students shadowed Spring-Ford students. After lunch we got a tour of the 9th grade school and had the opportunity to see the impressive rams football stadium in the school. Later the students made an excellent presentation about Ireland to students and teachers of Spring-Ford and Molly blew us all away with some Sean-nós singing.

American Exchange Blog Update.. 

On wednesday we visited the Evans elementary school where our students interacted with 2nd and 4th grade students. We were welcomed with a musical presentation by the 2nd grade students and then we all signed the graffiti wall dedicated to the limerick to limerick exchange. Our students then took part in an interview that was broadcasted throughout the school. They were asked questions about their culture, school and life in Ireland. Then our students from Coláiste Chiaráin had lots of fun playing various valentines games with the Evans elementary students  and everyone was presented with a valentines package upon departure.
