Erasmus+ Polish School Visit the CBS - Fri 28 Apr 2017

CBS Pupils and Their Polish Partner school visit the North Antrim Coast
 
The Christian Brothers’ Primary School has recently been heavily involved in an Eramsus+ European School Exchange Project entitled ‘Net Is The Key.” One of the main aspects of this project has been to team up with schools from around Europe and work on Internet Based Online Collaboration activities. The school was delighted to welcome 5 pupils and 2 teachers from their Polish partners from the city of Zamosc in south-eastern Poland to visit them. Part of their visit was to spend a day touring the North Antrim Coast with the pupils of the Primary 7 classes.

First stop on the day-long tour was to visit the world famous Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre before walking down to see the causeway stones. Having spent an hour scaling the famous rock formations, the pupils all braved the ‘Sheperd’s Steps’ and the steep climb was successfully completed by all!

Next, was a short drive along the coast road to the ‘Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge’. Again, despite some initial reservations, all of the visiting pupils and local pupils made the crossing over the 20m wide and 23m deep chasm onto Carrick Island. The boys and girls then explored Carrick Island, taking in the amazing views to Rathlin Island and Scotland in the background.
Finally, after an exhilarating day, the pupils and staff made the long journey back to Armagh in time for the evening activities and farewell party.
The school would like to thank the staff and pupils of Szkola Podstawowa Nr.2, Zamosc for their friendliness and for coming to visit us and we look forward to creating and maintaining lasting friendships and communication between the two schools.
