Waldaschaff School visits Clonakilty
On Wednesday 25th March 11 students from Waldaschaff travelled to Clonakilty to take part in a school exchange with the Clonakilty Convent of Mercy Secondary School.
Not only was it the first exchange between the two schools but it was also a unique experience for the all-girl Convent of Mercy School to have six boys attending their school.
The students (Arne Barros-Hagemann, Clara Brehm, Conny Berr, Dilan Ertürk, Felix Roth, Luis Habel, Lukas Fleischer, Luna Hessler, Melisa Erkan, Tarkan Meric ) were accompanied by School Principal Reinhold Eckert, Vice-Principal Joachim Brand, English teacher Philipp Wissel, School caretaker Steffi Brehm, Lore Steigerwald outgoing Chairman of Freundeskreis Clonakilty, Heidi Eckert and Barbara Brand.
On arrival at Clonakilty Convent of Mercy Secondary School the group were welcomed by School Principal Ann-Marie Brosnan, Deputy Principal Brendan Walsh, German teacher Nevin McCarthy, and members of Clonakilty Town Twinning Association.
All of the students were accommodated by host families and Clonakilty Town Twinning Association are extremely grateful to these families. A full programme of events was put on for the week and both students and adults were very impressed by the beauty of the country and the friendly and sociable residents of Clonakilty.
