Partner's Day in Spain

Today we have celebrated the Partner´s Day. We have showed the DVD's of this year while the students, teachers and some mothers had a party with food and music.

The food was made at home by the students and their families. The party was at our Theathre at 14:15.

Dear students involved in Comenius,

It's been a tiring journey through this event and I would like to take this chance to thank you all for your involvement. I throughly enjoyed watching each county's numerous videos about the culture, themselves and their country as a whole. This experience has widened my peripheral outlook on the routine lifetsyles and interests of youths in Spain, Poland, Italy and Finland and helped me understand that our differences are only superficial and that we act more or less the same as each other, socially, economically and in a social sense.

Our video has been a joy to produce and I imagine your experiences were somewhat similar, I hope ours is as enjoyable to watch and I wish that you all learn something new about Ireland.


P.S. Who is the Spanish guy that put the Naruto openings on his video...(assuming it's a guy) Nice one \(>o<)/

ike being irish we have lots of famous people... even OBAMA is ours !!!

I think our relationship with Europe is good ( I think !) EUROPE BE NICE TO US WE'RE SMALL BUT DEADLY !!!


The longest place name in Ireland is Muckanaghederdauhaulia, It’s in County Galway.

The original Guinness Brewery in Dublin has a 9,000 year lease on its property, at a perpetual rate of 45 Irish pounds per year.

The first divorce ever granted in Ireland was in 1997

There are more cell phones in Ireland than people

It is said there are more Americans of Irish descent in America than there are Irish people in Ireland.!

An estimated 40% of the USA Presidents can claim Irish blood.

Irish people are said to be the happiest and friendliest people in the world !

Visit us sometime!!

Hi All Good Bye from us!

Good Bye from Dublin

España! Polska! Italia! Suomi!

Goodbye!! :( It has been fun learning about your countries. The videos look really well.

España, Murcia looks like a beautiful place and the Medieval Party looks like a lot of fun!!

Polska, your pastries look really tasty! Our teachers wish we celebrated Teacher’s Day in Ireland.

Italia, underwater rugby looks hard but fun! The piggy was really cool (: and your teachers told us loads about your school. I think you would very much enjoy Transition Year in Ireland.

Suomi, Finland is so beautiful! I am very jealous that we don’t have ski centres in Ireland. Do you often see the northern lights?

I enjoyed meeting all the teachers from your schools, they were all lovely and gave us a great chat!

I learned loads about film making over the last few months.

I love Ireland and I hope you all visit sometime!! :) You are all welcome Céad Míle Fáilte Roimhe!! We’ll show you around! (:

Hello to the students that we are partnered with,

I thought the project was fun and interesting. The DVD was fun to make, I found some interesting facts about my own country too!

I enjoyed watching your videos too. They were fun to watch and I learned a lot about your countries.

We got to talk to a bunch of your teachers too, they were fun to talk to.

I learned more about editing the video than I had previously known.

I like being a young Irish person. Out relationship with Europe, in my eyes is good.

"not backwards in coming forwards" – means a person is not shy.

"no flies on him" – means a person is not easily deceived.

"she has a tongue that would clip a hedge" - means a person who gossips.

"come for a day and stay for a week" – means someone outstaying their welcome.

Just a few facts to ponder over



Hello everyone involved in the Comenius project 2011.

I am one of the Irish students who got to see the finished projects from each of the participating countries. I.really enjoyed the free time video from Spain with the music from naruto. Also the free time video from Finland was awesome. All the skiing you guys get to do must be awesome would love to go skiing but we don't get much snow here in Ireland.




This was part of the work in progress for the project.

Here are some of the pictures taken during a sightseeing tour in Florence with the guide.

with love
