17 TY students travelled to Germany this year as part of an extended exchange programme which is now in its 6th year. The photos below give a good overview of the rich cultural, linguistic and educational experience they enjoyed.

Ein großer Erfolg!

Hallo liebe Drittklässler,
ich hoffe es geht euch allen gut und ihr hattet schöne Ferien?
Ich bin seit Ende Juni wieder in Deutschland. Es ist super meine Freunde wieder zu sehen, aber ich vermisse Irland!
Im August habe ich Urlaub in der Schweiz gemacht und war wandern und ich war in Österreich, in Salzburg. Dort habe ich die Festung Hohensalzburg besichtigt. Leider hat es geregnet und ich hatte keine Regenjacke dabei. Ich war nass bis auf die Haut!
Trotzdem ist Salzburg eine sehr schöne Stadt!
Ich wünsche euch alles Gute für das neue Schuljahr!

Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland
Jana
