Student exchange in Ireland - in the Ring of Kerry

The south-west coast of Ireland is graced with many beautiful places with white sandy beaches. Towns that are right by the sea. You will experience beautiful landscapes, a cozy atmosphere and visit the best state schools.
Nature is still intact here, fish, crabs and lobsters, which are rarely found in other sea regions, live here. Seagulls, cormorants and herons are not uncommon. If you are lucky, you might even see dolphins in the sea, or you can watch seals on the beach. The world famous “Irish moss” also comes from this area.

It's also a fabled area. Many myths and old castles, remnants of bygone eras, are the material for the legends of this region. Allegedly, the first people to have gone ashore on these seashores.

In the summer, the Ring of Kerry is a magnet for visitors. It is worth it in any case. Outside of the classic tourist times, the places offer a lot, especially for school exchanges in Ireland. The community is intact, active, cosmopolitan and warm. Outdoor sports such as golf, horse riding, surfing, sailing, hiking and mountain biking are offered.

There are also competitions such as B. “Young Scientist”, cooking competitions “Apprentice Chef”, “Real life Science” and “Poetry”, to name just a few.

Causeway, like some other schools in the South West, offers a slightly more intensive program. The entire community should be integrated. Company owners and self-employed people from the region are used as “mentors” for a group of schoolchildren. The students then professionally develop a mini-company or a community project under their guidance. For example, students have carried out a very successful training program for older people. This is about the handling of smartphones, tablets and computers. These courses are still very popular.
