Edinburgh and the Highlands

An amazingly mind-blowing week is over but its impressions, memories and experiences gained will last! Classes 6A and 6B fully enjoyed this week of total immersion into the Scottish and English culture, where new people were met, new food was tried, unknown places were explored and scenic landscapes were discorvered.

The programme of the week was rich and the weather fantastic. We explored Edingburgh, felt like Princess Diana on the Royal Britannia, climbed Arthur’s Seat at sunset, hiked through the Highlands, fed Highland cows, listened to the tragic fate of the Mac Donald Clan, looked for Nessi, danced ceilidh, ate Haggis and even went swimming in the sea at Portobello Beach!

 

Scotland and Edinburgh

Students of 6A and 6B toghether with their teachers Prof. Weißensteiner and Prof. Voß-Peichl are packing their suitcases to set off for a new destination – Edinburgh / Scotland. We are all looking forward to a week full of lasting impressions and fun activities. The highlight will probably be our Highland Tour at the weekend. We should watch out for Nessie and make sure not to mix up Càite bheil an taigh beag? and A bheil thu ‚g iarraidh a dhanns?

“To be kind to all, to like many and love a few, to be needed and wanted by those we love, is certainly the nearest we can come to happiness” – Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots (1542 – 87)

6CD in Dublin/Bray (April 22nd – 29th, 2018)

“One’s destination is never a place, but always a new way of seeing things.”

– Henry Miller  

39 students of 6C and 6D are going to spread their wings on Sunday April 22nd, eager to explore Ireland and its windswept beauty, literary heritage and sublime countryside.

The culinary team of class 6D, consisting of Nicolaus, Benjamin, pastry chef Mona and Felix, has expressed their excitement by means of a traditional Irish rhubarb cake, which turned out to be a real treat for our taste buds.

Our travel schedule is crammed full of adventures, ranging from courses at our language school to traditional Irish dance to Wicklow Jail – and maybe even the Holy Grail, the Book of Kells.

Right now, suitcases are being packed, before we head to Bray, guided by our English teachers Ms. Zeller and Ms. Weißensteiner. We’ll be sharing plenty of impressions with students, parents, siblings and teachers and we appreciate your comments on our class padlets!

6AB – The Dublin Experience

On April 5th, 2018 the 6A and 6B classes were accompanied by the Americans on their voyage to Ireland. With Herr Eichhorn and Frau Stadlmann to lead the excursion, we set off on our 7 day journey. Between classes at the English School in Dublin, we saw many main attractions, including Guinness Storehouse, Temple Bar, Bray, Glendalough, Croke Park Stadium, and Wicklow Jail, not to forget the amazing cliffs in Howth. Not only did we get to visit Ireland, we also got to stay with host families, which gave us the full Irish experience. Overall, the trip was fantastic, and future classes should look forward to this opportunity. Photos…

Projektwoche Irland 6CD 2015

Irland 6D 2015And 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!

Ar thuras scoile chuig Éirinn (The 6A and 6B on a language project week in Ireland.)

Bray 13The 6A and 6B forms, guided by their English teachers Angela Stadlmann and Armin Penn, spent the week from 6th to 13th March 2015 on a language project week in Bray, a small coastal town south of Dublin. There the students were put up with local host families who catered for them during that time. (mehr …)

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.
