This Friday, October 14, in the evening, third grade students from Collège Saint-Exupéry de Lesnevans and their teachers will travel to Ireland to be welcomed as families. They will return on Sunday, October 23. For the college, this is the second exchange with St Brigid’s College in Loughrea, which has a zero carbon requirement. “Two days out of eight we’ll be doing everything on site on foot, as well as a bike tour of the island of Inis Mor,” explains English teacher Rachel Golhen.
A busy week for the Irish
At the beginning of the month, 47 Irish youth and four teachers were welcomed to Finistère families for a week, during which the visitors were able to visit Brest, especially Oceanopolis and the Capuchins, not to mention cable car rides and shopping. They shared a gig ha farce and a disco evening in the college cafeteria. They practiced kayaking and rowing and visited Quimper. Before taking the ferry back, after a few games of bowling, there was a demonstration of Irish hurling, a common sport (a team sport played with a stick and a small ball, which shares many aspects of Gaelic football, ed).
