Picture20Since the beginning of the school year, 2nd year students have exchanged letters with their French penpals from a French Secondary school called Collège Privé Joseph Niel in Muret, near Toulouse.

In April, Portlaoise College had the pleasure to welcome the French students for two days. The French and Irish students were involved in many activities to enjoy each other’s company and discover each other’s’ culture.

It was a wonderful experience! Everybody involved had a great time. This is the beginning of a friendship and exchange between Portlaoise College and Collège Privé Joseph Niel in France. Next year we hope to be able to go and visit our penpals in Muret, in the South West of France.
