Details and photos from our recent French exchange to Lyon.
Tuesday: More fun in Lyon today! French improving all the time and confidence building up among all our students. We had classes all morning with girls tasting music, french, Science and Art. Experiencing a full day at their school was very enjoyable especially given the early start and one hour lessons. This was topped off by an amazing visit to La chocolaterie!
Wednesday: And so its the last night. 😔Today we had a walking classroom experience- this was very different to anything we have ever done at home. Visited Gratte ciel and broke into two groups for researching the district and filling in worksheets.
THursday: Au revoir! Everyone is home safe and sound and missing our fabulous French friends in Les Iris. What a fantastic and welcoming week we spent with them and their families. We cannot wait to reciprocate the kindness shown to us when they come back to Ireland in April. Living a language is definitely learning a language for life. We have created life long memories and are so grateful for the opportunity. Huge thanks to Miss Ní Mháille for organising the trip and Mr Keeney for teaching us so much French abroad! We will not forget it. Thanks also to our students who were so well behaved and represented our school so remarkably, what wonderful ambassadors. A pleasure to travel with!
