German Exchange

16 RMC students have recently returned from Germany where they spent a week attended Gymnasium Achern as part of the RMC German exchange programme. While in Germany the students lived with German families, attended school and gave presentations to class groups regarding life in Ireland. The students also had a busy leisure programme and found time for bowling, a table quiz, BBQ, visit to the French city of Strasbourg as well as the theme park Europapark. The students enjoyed their visit to Germany immensely and are delighted with their improved language skills as well as their new insight into German culture and everyday life. We look forward to welcoming our German visitors to RMC and Cork next March.
