School Twinning

School Twinning is an initiative in partnership with schools in Newfoundland and Labrador and the South East of Ireland. It engages our youth as we celebrate people, culture, and community; sharing our history, our places, and our possibilities.

The goal of School Twinning is to foster creative linkages between youth, schools and the school communities in support of the spirit of  Irish Connections.

This year The 2015 Gathering is pleased to announce the School Twinning of Holy Trinity High School, Torbay & St. Declan’s Community College, Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford.
