Fairwell to our partner teachers from Portugal and Sweden who visited our school this week as part of the Erasmus project. Our visitors experienced daily life in our school by visiting classes, participated in a GAA lesson, took part in an Irish céilí and visited Croke Park and the Guinness Storehouse during their time here. We also participated in two workshops about Educate Together and a fascinating workshop about culture in schools. We wish to thank our parents who volunteered to take part in the workshop. Please visit the Erasmus page where we will update with more information and photographs about their tour.
Next week our school will welcome teachers from Sweden and Portugal as part of the Erasmus + project in which ACETNS are participating. The main theme of the project is the exchange of good practice in relation to The Multicultural Class. The visiting teachers shall be in our school on Monday and Wednesday. On Tuesday they shall be brought on a cultural tour of Dublin. Visit the Erasmus + page for more information.
As part of our Erasmus + project our Student Council had a Skype meeting with our Swedish partners during a very challenging COVID 19 period. It was a great opportunity for our student council to talk to students from another country and share experiences. You can view the meeting on our ACETNS YouTube page or click on the link below.
