Each year we are happy to welcome visiting students from Europe who are enrolled in the school for a year to improve their English. The students stay with local families, and to date we have had students from France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
Both Ard Scoil na nDéise girls and the visiting students benefit from learning about a different country and culture, and many new friendships are formed. It is wonderful to see the students settling in happily in the Ard Scoil and enjoying their time in this beautiful part of the country.
