This year marks the third birthday of our French Exchange with the Lycée Victor Hugo in Château-Gontier in the west of France. Each October we welcome their teachers with their 24 charges for a ten-day period. During their stay they are treated to trips to Glendalough, Croke Park, the Dunbrody, Waterford city, Wexford city and Dublin city as well as the addition of a cultural evening of traditional music and dance facilitated by the school trad band and musicians. Reports back from our visitors have been categorically positive.

During our stay in France each March our students are afforded unforgettable trips to the famous Mont St Michel, the seaside town of St Malo, chocolate factories and treasure hunts in Château-Gontier, breathtaking castles and bustling cities as well as the cafés, music, croissants, art, culture, passion and everything else that forms the beating heart of French life.

It is an action-packed ten days but of invaluable importance to our language students who get to experience the culture that they have previously been studying and reading about only in text books brought to life.
