Students of Balbriggan Community College have been busy preparing for a visit to St. Wendel, Germany on a school exchange visit. Thirteen students accompanied by two teachers are heading away on Monday 4th March 2013 for a four day visit.

Leas Cathaoirleach of Balbriggan Town Council, Councillor Peadar O’Kelly together with the Town Manager Ide DeBairtiseil called to Balbriggan Community College on Thursday last to wish the students well on their journey. Balbriggan Town Council signed a partnership arrangement with the town of St. Wendel, Saarland in 2008 which has resulted in various exchanges between both towns.

Leas Cathaoirelach of the Town Council, Councillor Peadar O’Kelly stated “The school exchange is a key part of the Town Councils vision for the partnership and Balbriggan Town Council are delighted to be able to support these exchanges which will forge stronger links between both towns. This will be the third visit to St. Wendel by students from Balbriggan Community College. I have no doubt the students will be wonderful ambassadors for Balbriggan and I wish them well on their visit and hope they make lasting friendships in St. Wendel”.
