Three teachers from our school, Andrea Ní Cheallaigh, Sara Ní Bhroin and Cian Ó Tuathaláin visited Ribadavia on the 22nd of October until the 26th of October 2018. They went to the school IES Ribeiro and met with the teachers in Ribadavia.

The teachers went over there to discuss the upcoming project Erasmus+, financed by the Europian Union. This is the Erasmus + project focusing on “Medieval Villas, Sustainability and Town Twinning” in which the two schools, Colaiste Ghlór na Mara in Balbriggan and IES Ribeiro in Ribadavia communicate with one another through Skype and learn about each others’ culture and social dynamics.

Additionaly, the students in Ribadavia are learning a considerable amount of Irish and we are also learning Spanish and a little bit of Galician. The teachers visiting Ribadavia were the first phase in starting the Erasmus+ project. This project will initiate a new connection between the two twinning towns of Ribadavia and Balbriggan.

Ribadavia is known for it’s locally produced wine , the teachers from our school really enjoyed tasting the wine. The teachers met with María López Touza, mayor of Culture, and were accompanied by Manuel Araujo, technician of the OMIX of Ribadavia and Miguel García, president of the Foundation Festa da Istoria. The teachers were very impressed with how welcoming and friendly the people of Ribadavia were. The teachers were given a tour around IES Ribeiro.

Our teachers gave a presentation to the students of the Ribadavia school. They had a welcoming meal in the mountains of Ribadavia to get to know other teachers they’d be working with. The main difference between Balbriggan and Ribadavia is how well they look after their town square and the old buildings throughout the town, they managed to maintain the old buildings for tourists to enjoy when they visit the town.

The students who preform best in this project will have the opportunity to travel to Ribadavia in the month of April for a very low price, as there is a grant given to the school for the Erasmus+ project. And the students chosen in IES Ribeiro will get the chance to come to Ireland in the month of May. There will be 15 students chosen from a group of 30 in our school, Colaiste Ghlór na Mara and another 15 students chosen from a group of 60 in Ribadavia. It is anticipated that the students from our school will be accommodated by the families of the students who are attending the IES Ribeiro.

D’imigh triúr mhúinteoir ónár ár scoil, Andrea Ní Cheallaigh, Sarah Ní Bhroin agus Cian Ó Tuathaláin go dtí Ribadavia ar an 22 lá de Dheireadh Fómhair go dtí an 26ú lá de mí Deireadh Fómhair. Thug siad cuairt ar an scoil IES Ribeiro agus bhuail siad leis na múinteoirí sa scoil.

Thaisteal na múinteoirí thall ansin chun tagairt a dhéanamh ar an tionscnamh Erasmus+ le deontas ón Aontas Eorapach. Is éard atá i gceist le Erasmus+ don tionscnamh seo ná: ‘Bailte meánaoiseacha, Inbhuanaitheacht agus Nascadh Bailte’. Beidh daltaí ón dá scoil, Coláiste Ghlór na Mara i mBaile Brigín agus IES Ribeiro i Ribadavia ag déanamh teagmháil leana chéile trí Skype agus foghlaim faoi chultúr agus saol sóisialta an bhaile.

Chomh maith leis sin tá na daltaí i Ribadavia ag foghlaim roinnt Gaeilge agus tá muidne ag foghlaim Spáinnis agus píosa Gailísise. Nuair a tháinig na múinteoirí ar cuairt go dtí Baile Ribadavia bhí sé sin mar an chead chéim chun ár dtionscnamh Erasmus + a thosú.

Beidh an tionscnamh seo in ann an ceangal idir na dá baile nasctha. Ta clú agus cáil ar Ribadavia mar gheall ar an bhfíon a thairgtear go háitiúil. Bhain na múinteoirí s’againne sult as a bheith ag blaiseadh an fhíon. Tháinig ár múinteoiri le chéile in éineacht leis an bríomhaire ar chultúr Maria Lopez Touza agus Manuel Araujo teicneoir an OMIX Ribadavia agus Miguel Garcia uachtaráin ar an Festa da Istoria.

Bhí na múinteoirí an-bhuíoch as cé chomh cairdiúil agus deas is a bhí na daoine i Ribadavia. Tugadh turas do na múinteoirí timpeall ar an scoil IES. Rinne ár múinteoirí cur i láthair os comhar na ndaltaí i Ribadavia. Bhi béile fáilte acu i sléibhte Ribadavia chun aithne a chur ar na múinteoirí eile lena mbeidh siad ag obair.

An difríocht is mo idir Ribadavia agus Baile Brigin ná an caoi go dtugann siad aire don lárcheantar agus na seanfhorgnimh timpeall air. D’éirigh leo na seanfhorgnimh a chaomhnú ionas go mbeidh turasóirí in ann cuairt a thabhairt ar na foirgnimh nuair a thagann siad ar cuairt sa tír.

Beidh deis ag na daltaí a dhéanann an obair is fearr sa tionscadal taisteal go dtí Ribadavia i mí Aibreáin ar phraghas an-íseal mar gheall go bhfuil deontas ón Aontas Eorpach don tionscnamh.

Gheobhaidh na daltaí o IES Ribeiro seans teacht thall anseo i mí Bealtaine. Roghnófar 15 mac léinn ó ghrúpa 30 inár scoil, Coláiste Ghlór na Mara agus roghnaíodh 15 mac léinn eile ó ghrúpa de 60 i Ribadavia. Táthar ag súil go mbeidh teaghlaigh na mac léinn atá ag freastal ar IES Ribeiro ag freastal ar na daltaí ónár scoil.
