TY and 5th Year German Trip
On Thursday the 12th of October, 37 students from both Transition Year and 5th Year German classes went to the city centre via school bus to the IFI (Irish Film Institute) to see a new movie from Germany which is called “Goodbye Berlin”, a movie about two boys who embark on a journey over the summer holidays in a stolen Lada Niva vehicle. The movie began at roughly 10:30. Many schools had gathered to see the movie. Overall, all students thought the movie was great but many had opinions about the ending, some liked it and some didn't.
Next the students split up for a 30 minute lunch break to relax after the movie. Once lunch was over, everyone gathered and all began their way down to the National Gallery to view exhibits made by famous German artists such as Käthe Kollwitz and Gabriele Münter, the students were split into two groups and were both given a guide who took us on a tour of the entire gallery. They showed us the many different famous paintings of German artist from the times of before World War 1 until World War 2. The students enjoyed the overall visit. We finished the tour by taking a few group pictures. Then all students made their own way home. Pics
