ARRIVAL AND BOWLING - 1st WEEK


Although we arrived with some delay we finally can say: WE ARE HERE!!!







After Santiago picked us up from the airport we headed to Rockbrook International School, where we received a warm welcome from the Principal, Luis Hernandez and who explained to the kids the main rules and the main things of Ireland just before they were picked up by their host families.







It’s been a week full of changes, new home, new school, new friends, new teachers; and full of rain…Oh, rain!



The boys are divided into 4 schools: Ballyroan’s B.N.S, St. Mary’s B.N.S, St. Kevin’s B.N.S and St. Cronan’s B.N.S.
Finally, Saturday is here, and we met to our weekly plan, it was supposed to rain so we went to bray’s Bowling. Where the kids enjoyed the bowls, Ignacio Benavides and Enric Rodríguez showed their magic throwing the ball, and we played three games of laser tag what a blast!! After that, they had some free time to play with the machines. To end the day we had a walk on the beach, some of the boys saw the Atlantic Ocean for the first time.




What a week!!! See you soon!!

City Centre and Shopping - 9th (and last) Weekend

Last weekend in Dublin!
This is coming to the end, as we did our last Saturday plan in Ireland.
This week we started the project 4, whose name is "Let's rap". The boys have recorded their own written raps and I will mix the different parts to make a song!
The boys knew since the beginning what would be the last plan... Shopping!
I took the chance to visit the most important places in Dublin's city centre, as we had just studied them in the third project. So we went to Trinity College, Dublin Castle, St. Patrick, Christ Church, St. Stephen's Green... and finally to do some shopping.
I can't tell you much about it, because the lads would like to keep it secret. You will have some surprises on Thursday!
Last week, last days, last hours in Dublin. Let's make the most out of them.
See you soon!

Rockbrook Champions League - 8th Weekend

This weekend it was time to take part in the traditional football tournament of all Spanish students here in Dublin: The Rockbrook Champions League.
During the week, I have to mention that schools are doing many outings and fun activities. For example, Ballyroan School received the visit of the Garda Band, the music ensemble of the Irish police! (garda=police in Irish!).
On Saturday we went to mass and afterwards we spent the whole day in Rockbrook. Viaró participated with 2 teams and Ramón and Tomás volunteered to play in the "mixed team", with students from other schools.
Pablo Gutiérrez missed this plan, because he traveled with his family to... England! I'm sure he enjoyed it a lot!
It was very diffiult to compete against the other students, but I'm really proud of both teams! They both lost 2 games and won 1, so they couldn't advance to the semifinals. However, they played very well!
At the end, it was time for a well-deserved picnic! Although we didn't win medals or trophies, we enjoyed some snacks and drinks, with a special prize for Ramón and Tomás for their generosity, after a day full of sports!
Here you have the gallery of the tournament:
