Gengenbach 2019

A group of 2nd Year students of German enjoyed a truly action packed week in Gengenbach,Germany recently.

Organised by Ms BrĂ­d O'Kennedy the group left Dublin Airport and flew to Stuttgart where there were met by their  exchange families and teachers from Marta-Schanzenbach-Gymnasium,(secondary school)  our student exchange partner. This is the second year of a very successful exchange project set up by Ms O'Kennedy from St Augustine's and Volker Schmidt of Marta-Schanzenbach-Gymnasium.

We were treated to a very tasty meal at the school on our arrival in Gengenbach after which the students set off to the homes of their exchange families.

It was all systems go for the following days with the students enjoying sporting activities at the school, a visit to Europe Theme Park, Treasure Hunt in Gengenbach, Tobogganing, Trip to Black Forest, A Barbecue with their German friends and their families, silvermining,  just to mention some of the activities that our German hosts had organised for us. Our students really did us proud with the presentation they gave to the German students, the presentation included a very interesting power point presentation on Dungarvan, a display of camogie skills by Jessica, Luke gave an excellent performance on the tin whistle and the whole group gave an uplifting rendition of "Dungarvan My Home Town" Well done to all and many thanks to Ms O'Kennedy for all her hard work in organising the trip. All students were adamant that their German has definitely improved .

Ms Myra O'Donovan travelled with the group to lend a helping hand. We look forward to our German friends' return trip in October.
