St. Mary's College Arklow - European Studies Class Celebrate Success

Twenty four lucky students from the Transition Year European Studies class in St Mary's College, Arklow, Co. Wicklow have won a trip to Strasbourg, France.

The class entered a competition run by the website Europarl in association with the Euroscola programme for young people.

The girls had to design a web page for European Studies which included information about projects they are due to undertake over the course of the year and more.

This web page won the Overall Prize for the the Eastern Region and as a result they have won a two day subsidised trip to Strasbourg at the end of May.

On the trip they will get the chance to go to the European Parliment and discuss and vote on topical issues and European subjects with 600 other students between the ages of 16 and 18 from all twenty seven member states of the EU.

The girls would like to say a big thank you to Ms. Kelleher for getting them involved in the competition and are really looking forward to the trip!
