The German Department
The German Department in Davitt College is a vibrant energetic department. German is very popular on the curriculum here. There is a choice between German and French in first year. The German Department has a sister school in Bavaria Germany. The sister school is located in a town called Hochstadt an der Aisch, which is the twin town of Castlebar.
Our sister school is called Realschule Hochstadt. The school is a mixed school with over 1000 pupils.
March 2016 sees the rekindling of the German Exchange programme between Davitt College and Realschule Hochstadt.
A group of 25 Germans ( 22 pupils and 3 teachers) arrive at Davitt College on Sunday 13 March. They will spend 5 days here with us. An action packed itinerary is planned for the group. They will stay with host families of the 5th yr group, they will attend school and enjoy activities steeped in Irish Culture and Tradition.
