German exchange students have a ‘wunderschöne reise’

Our annual German Exchange trip took place as usual during February. This year marked our 26th Exchange with our partner school Gymnasium Münchberg. Fourteen of our Transition year German students travelled with their German teacher Colette Clarke and accompanied by their TY coordinator Johanna Williams. What a wonderful time was had by everyone involved.

An action packed programme was planned by our German friends and from the moment we landed on German soil it was all go. Students spoke German and experienced the German culture on a first hand basis. They spent time in Berlin and got to see all the wonderful sights and landmarks. Bamberg and Mödlareuth were visited as were the Donald Duck museum in Schwarzenbach.

The Lord Mayor (Bürgermeister) welcomed our group warmly and two of our students thanked their German partners, teachers and families for a wonderful time…”Danke, danke, danke!”

School was attended on a daily basis and students attended many classes, including History, Geography, German, Music (with the principal Herr Koppitz) and Science (where they made Gummi bärchen – jellies).

An enjoyable evening was also had at the Ballet performance of Romeo and Julliet in Hof.

Many students got the opportunity to go skiing with their German families at the weekend. There was plenty of snow and many got to see Jakob, a giant snowman 13 metres high in Bishofsgrün.

The German food was delicious according to our students and the host families found our Irish students to be very well mannered and a joy to host. Overall, it was a fantastic experience.

Thanks students for being wonderful ambassadors. You were a credit to yourselves and your families and your teachers were very proud of you all. You participated in everything in a positive and respectful manner.

Well done to the German department and especially to Colette Clarke and Johanna Williams for accompanying our wonderful students on this memorable exchange.
