St Mary’s and Sean lead way

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

A DROGHEDA school is one of three Ir­ish schools in­volved with a new French pro­gramme which will see Euro­pean stu­dents prac­tis­ing their lan­guage skills by phone and com­puter.

Mr. Scan Hig­gins, French teacher in St. Marys Dioce­san School, is now busy or­gan­is­ing a cross-Euro­pean French lan­guage pro­gramme for a class of fifth year stu­dents start­ing in Septem­ber 1991 for a one term pe­riod.

“The idea of the project is to make French more ac­ces­si­ble to stu­dents and to help them come into con­tacl with other Euro­pean stu­dents from Bel­gium, France and Great Bri­tain through the medium of French,” says Mr. Hig­gins.

“What makes the pro­gramme par­tic­u­larly dis­tinc­tive here is that stu­dents in St. Marys will com­mu­ni­cate with fel­low Euro­pean stu­dents through the use of the phone and com­puter,” he adds.

As well as gen­eral com­mu­ni­ca­tion links with Euro­pean schools, St. Marys will also make a par­tic­u­lar link-up with a French school as it is a par­tic­u­lar ob­jec­tive of the project to de­velop ex­chanes be­tween Ir­ish and French schools.
