TY Australian Exchange

The second leg of the Transition Year Australian Exchange has commenced with seven Glenstal boys heading to Sydney to join up with their Australian families.

The Exchange is with two Schools in the Sydney area, St. Augustine’s College Sydney and Central Coast Grammar School.

The Glenstal boys met in Dublin Airport where they prepared for their journey halfway to the other side of the world. There was great excitement as the boys checked in and said a last goodbye to their parents before they disappeared behind the security screens.

Leo McGrath, former Assistant Principal of the school escorted the boys to Sydney.

The news so far is that they are all enjoying themselves and that the “Web-TY's-to-Australiasurf is up”.

The picture shows Robert Sweeney, Gordon Daly, Henry Tennyson, Diarmuid Glavey and Rory Johnston at Dublin Airport. The two other TY’s traveling and out of the photos are Robbie Kearns and James Enright.

We are looking forward to hearing stories of their Australian Exchange when they return next month.
