Donegal students to visit European Parliament in Strasbourg today
Students from St Columba's College in Stranorlar will visit the European Parliament in Strasbourg today to participate in the Euroscola programme. They will get the opportunity today to see what it is like to work as an MEP. They will work with students from the EU's other 26 Member States on a range of current issues and will then vote on their decisions later in the day. All students nominated to speak during the final part of the programme will speak in a language other than their own (i.e. French, German, etc.). Catherine Cooke-Harkin, the school's Transition Year Coordinator said that 'the students from St Columba's College are really looking forward to this opportunity.'
The St Columba's College students participating in today's Euroscola programme are:
Paul Duncan, Kevin Bernie, David Ward, Shane Callaghan, Matthew Sweeney, Caolán Quinn, Paul Armstrong, Gareth Reynolds, Shane Mc Ginty, Thomas Bowden Mc Inulty, Denise Mc Granaghan, Niamh Phelan, Siobhán Mc Brearty, Niamh Morris (pictured left to right in back row of above photo) and Patrick Hynes Foy, Liam Gallagher, Ronan Mc Bride, Sinéad Martin, Michaela Lafferty, Catherine Foy, Kiera Cronnolly, Ashley Pye, Gemma Dullaghan (pictured left to right in front row of above photo).
