It was a busy September for Gorey Community School German department as both halves of the annual student exchange took place.

Early in the month, students and teachers from St. Ursula's Geilenkirchen visited Gorey, where, apart from attending regular classes, they went on trips to Kilkenny and Dublin.

Two weeks later their Irish exchange partners went on the return visit to Germany. They too participated in regular school activities, but were also brought on tours of Cologne and Aachen, where they got a taste of German history and culture.

A school spokesperson said they will hopefully benefit from the experience. Preparations for next year start soon.
