Friday 15th November our Art and German students visited the National Art Gallery to view a Bauhaus exhibition. A great cross-curricular learning experience for students as they saw various exhibitions and shared their knowledge from both subjects. 

A busy month for our students of German as they were also host to the arrival of the Deutschmobil. The Deutschmobil is an educational project which is organised by the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst), the German Embassy in Dublin and the Goethe-Institut Ireland. It was initiated in September 2013 as part of the wider campaign ‘GermanConnects’ in order to promote the German language in Ireland.

On Thursday the 21st November the Deutschmobil vehicle visited Drogheda Grammar School. Junior and Leaving Certificate students were involved in interactive lessons with Ms Christine Kopke, a visiting teacher from Cologne. Students really enjoyed learning about Germany, learning new idioms and to practise their Deutsch with a native speaker!
