Rosses Community School hosts Arta Secondary School from Mallorca


Rosses Community School hosts Arta Secondary School from Mallorca


This week an exchange group of students from Arta Secondary School in Mallorca are being hosted by students of the Rosses Community School.


This is an ongoing exchange between both schools in which both sets of students are afforded  the opportunity to spend a week visiting their  respective schools.


Ms. Nuaria Agulio, a native of Mallorca, is a teacher in the Rosses Community School for the past number of years and it is through her that this link has been forged. 


Ten students from Dungloe spent a week last May in Arta and now these students are hosting the return visit.


The exchange seeks to promote education and learning  through experiencing a new culture, by educational activities, by experiencing a new language, and by sharing hobbies and interests. The Mallorcan students have a week long programme of events organised by Ms. Agulio. Among the first engagements was the opportunity to visit the local County Council Offices for the Glenties Electoral Area at Dungloe.


Cllr. Micheál Choilm Mac Giolla Easbuig and Eamonn Brown, Area Manager welcomed the visitors and gave a short presentation to the students explaining the work of the County Council. 


It was also an opportunity for the students to share their opinions and to explain what challenges they experienced on their Island, particularly  the challenges that tourism creates and the pressures  on natural resources, the environment, housing and other matters relevant to their lives.


Cllr. Mac Giolla Easbuig addressed the students and explained his role as a councillor and his delight to be speaking with them.  Cllr. Mac Goilla Easbuig thanked all those who came and paid a special thanks to the three teachers Nuaria, Tofol and Doni and to Dr. Joe Kelly. He wished them well and hoped that they would enjoy their time in Donegal.
