German Visitors

A group of language teachers from Germany visited us recently. They came to Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní) to see how we teach and learn languages here. They were very impressed!

The teachers visited the children in their classes and spoke to them about all the wonderful work they do in class. They were amazed by the beautiful dual-language books written by the girls in Second Class. They loved the dance performed by the girls and taught them a German dancing game played by children in Germany.

They loved the sound of the Irish language as they moved from class to class and they learned how to say ‘Dia dhuit!’ (Hello).

When they visited the Language Room, they were completely enthralled by the wonderful fashion show put on by the girls from a few different classes. They were really impressed by the ease with which the girls were able to comment, in a variety of languages, on the beautiful traditional clothes on display.

All in all, it was a most successful visit. Who knows? Maybe some of the marvellous ideas the visiting teachers got when they came to our school will be used by them when they go back to Germany!  Gute Reise!
