Christmas season is upon us!!!

Annalea and Kurumi in Howth

Where has the time gone? I can’t believe that it’s been over 3 months since you all arrived here in Ireland. It’s great to see so many friendships formed, and bonds created.

As we enter silly season and start to leave all the exams behind, I’m sure you’re all getting excited for the arrival of Mr Clause 😊 We would like to take this opportunity to encourage all of you to make the most of the month of December here in Ireland. A few of you will go home for Christmas and won’t be back, so please enjoy the rest of your time here and enjoy the Christmas spirit that Ireland has to offer. There is a live crib with live animals up at St Stephen’s Green Park, along with the moving crib two doors down from our office here on Parnell Square. We would highly recommend both, and to also pay a visit to Dublin Castle’s Christmas market. This is free of course; however, you do need to go online and book tickets for your slot. You can do so here: Dublin Castle (

Other things that may be fun is to go ice skating, and to do a free self-guided tour of the lights in Dublin city centre. There’s plenty to do so we hope you all go out and enjoy yourselves and make the most of your time here 😊

Here are some photos that we would like to share with you for the week.

From all of us here on the high school team 😊
