Going Dutch: 11 October 2017

Boys and girls from the Johannes Fontanus Bilingual School in Holland, visited Manor House on Wednesday 11 October. They participated in several classes and took part in a céilí dance and a language quiz. Teachers from both schools engaged in professional dialogue about education in Holland and Ireland. This was a very enjoyable encounter. Thanks to all involved.
