The students entered the national competition last October. The competition required them to produced a short 2 minute video on 'Why young people should vote in European Elections'. The school was selected as the winner from over 600 entries nationwide. Euroscola offers an immersive experience in the Chamber of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, allowing high-school students to learn about European integration by experiencing it first hand. Students from the 28 EU Member States are selected to become Members of the European Parliament for one day. They take the floor in plenary and committee sessions to debate and vote on resolutions on current affairs, all the while practising their language skills and making friends with fellow students from across Europe. Teachers also have the opportunity to meet their colleagues and exchange feedback about their own classroom practices & experiences.
24 TY students will travel this Wednesday 11th April to Strasbourg and onwards to Munich on Friday. The will be accompanied by their teachers Mr Eoin Shinners, Ms Michele Daly and Mr Cathal McNamara.
