Manuel and Bea

We bid a fond farewell to Manuel and Bea who are returning home to Spain after spending the school year in Transition Year. They settled in so well from the very start and immersed themselves in so many activities throughout the year. They established many friendships and had a great rapport with students and staff. They were highly complimented for their participation in work experience on Fridays and indeed they showed great enthusiasm in all their subjects and projects and enjoyed all aspects of Irish culture and education. Staff and students will have many happy memories of their time spent in DCS. We wish them the best of luck in the future. (B. Clesham)
