DCS German Exchange Students visit Lord Mayor’s Office


Pupils from Douglas Community School, Christ the King and Coláiste an Sprioraid Naoimh with their German exchange partners from the Herder Gymnasium School in cologne.

The pupils attended school for two weeks and then did two weeks’ Work Experience in Cologne and Cork. The exchange is in its 16th year and its aim is to immerse pupils in the target language and to develop cultural, social and educational links between Ireland and Germany.

Douglas Community School pupils Eoghan O Brien, Brian Creagh and Daniel Mason and their German exchange partners Alex Tsambsis, Lennart Buhlmann and Niklas Jakobi attended a reception hosted by the Lord Mayor of Cork, John Buttimer, on Wednesday 24 October 2012, on the third week of the exchange. Cork and Cologne are twinned cities and the city authorities support the school and work experience exchange.
