La La Land

On Tuesday, March 7, the English Talents and parts of classes 4e and 3d spent an entertaining afternoon together. After the train ride and some refreshments we watched the fairy-tale like Oscar-winning movie „La La Land“ in cinema paradiso. Opinions about the film varied from „fantastic“ to „disappointing“. 

EPW – Exhibition and presentations

The successful and very much appreciated English Project Week ended with an exhibition along the main corridor and presentations of what was done in the workshops. Enthusiastic students presented songs, poems, sketches and posters to their fellow classmates, pupils from other classes, teachers and our headmaster Dir. Eder.

The overall feedback that was given: It was fantastic!!!!

Projektwoche Irland 6CD 2015

And it never rained in Southern Ireland!

– as long as the travelling angels of 6C/D were totally immersing into English language and Irish culture in Bray from October 8th– October 15th, 2015. Guided by their teachers, M.Ofenauer and Ms.Parrer, the students set off to explore historic Irish monuments, like Glendalough and Wicklow Jail, Irish urban and sports life in Dublin and the Irish landscape by doing the Bray Cliffwalk, the Bray Beachwalk and repeatedly taking the Dart to Dublin along the coastline. Morning (and afternoon classes) in ATC language school were intense, so were afternoon and evening activities. Our feet hurt from walking and dancing, but the warm hospitality of our Irish hostfamilies helped us to recover and gather new strength for upcoming adventures. Back in Austria we still hear the sound of Irish music and we will keep the memories of Irish friendliness dear in our hearts!
Go raibh maith agaibh! Thank you Eire for a wonderful week!

English Project Week 2015

This week the students of year 4 are enjoying an English Project week,  a week of total immersion into the English language.

Everybody is welcome to watch the presentation! Classes.

In Molly Malone’s Fair City …

One week of full immersion into Irish culture, lifestyle and the English language – that was this year’s language week of classes 6C and 6D together with their teachers Johannes Eichhorn, Silvia Zeller and Doris Sommer.

Our enjoyable but still exhausting days always started with morning classes with native teachers at ATC Language School in the city centre. The afternoons and evenings were enriched by a great variety of activities and excursions such as Irish dancing, a visit of the home of Gaelic sports (Croke Park Stadium), Glendalough, and Kilmainham Gaol (jail) – the historic site that led us even deeper into Irish history. A breathtaking cliff walk on the Howth peninsula and a few hours on Malahide’s sandy beaches rounded off our Irish experience. Our Irish hosts welcomed us with warm hospitality, which made it even harder to say goodbye.

English Language Week 6AB in Bray, Ireland

6AB-Irlandreise-Mai-2014-Wicklow21 After arriving on Monday in front of our language school we were all excited to be picked up by our host families. In spite of cultural differences we were all very lucky to live with nice families and nobody had any problems. After long days they provided us with a good dinner an encouraged us to use our English skills by involving us in conversations. Throughout the week we visited various places of interest in Ireland, starting with a guided tour in Dublin. Ireland’s capital city especially appealed to some of us because of the numerous possibilities for shopping. All students were happy to stroll through Grafton Street and Henry Street, the most popular shopping streets in Dublin. A full day tour took us to the rather creepy Wicklow Gaol and the mystic monastery of Glendalough, which were also interesting visits. We learnt a lot about the history of Ireland and we could even experience it through the interactive exhibitions. Evenings were always exciting, whether we had preplanned activities or met our friends at the beach. On Thursday we went Irish dancing, a part of our journey that we will never forget. The Irish music and rhythms made everyone rock the dance floor. Other than that, we also enjoyed going bowling, to the cinema as well as the Greyhound Races. All in all we had a fantastic week and although we got into some typical Irish weather, we could enjoy sunny days at the beach and all along the cliffwalk from Bray to Greystones. Some of us even came home sunburnt. Karina Scheichelbauer, Kathrin Suda

The Gruffalo Party

GruffaloOn Friday 11th April class 1E presented the play “The Gruffalo” in the library. Parents, brothers and sisters were impressed by the great performance of the young and talented children. The show, the music, the costumes and masks contributed to a successful evening. Afterwards we all enjoyed home-made Gruffalo cakes in the school’s Treffpunkt.
