Hey all!

I hope you’re all doing well and that you’ve been enjoying your first month in the Emerald Isle! It’s been fantastic having all of you her. So, here’s a few tips:

Embracing Irish Sunshine 🌞

First things first, let’s talk about the Irish weather. Yes, you heard it right – the Irish sunshine! Ireland may have a reputation for rain, but September often brings a delightful surprise. The weather in Ireland is still quite lovely this time of year, with mild temperatures and a good amount of sunshine. It’s the perfect opportunity to explore the stunning landscapes, coastal cliffs, and all the goods that the country has to offer. So, don’t forget to seize the opportunity and make the most of your free time outside of school.

Making Friends from Around the World 🌍

One of the most valuable aspects of this experience is the friendships you’re making. You’re connecting with students from all over the world, sharing your cultural backgrounds, and learning from one another. These friendships are not only enriching but also help you feel at home in a foreign land. Cherish these bonds as they will be a significant part of your time in Ireland.

Your School Year/Semester 📚

As September unfolds, we understand that school life is about to get busier. Classes, homework, and extracurricular activities will start filling up your schedules. But remember, this is a unique opportunity for growth and learning. Embrace your studies and engage with your teachers and classmates; it’s a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the local culture and make lasting connections.
