Evening Activities @ CIELS

In addition to our afternoon activities we run evening activities to keep our students occupied and safe.

There is an evening activity provided for our visitors three nights each week.

  • CIELS runs a disco with another school in the locality. The disco is run in a venue outside of town, supervised and only visiting students and children of host families may attend. The discos give the students opportunity to really 'let their hair down' and get to know their fellow students in a social and fun environment.
  • Local Gaelic Games tutors teach students some basic and fun skills in Gaelic Football and Hurling. Boys and girls both love talking part in this enjoyable cultural activity. They receive their instructions through English.

  • On nights when there is no event held, a recreation centre is open where our students can socialise in a relaxing environment. They play Wii or XBox Connect, play table tennis or football, or plug their mp3 player into a docking station and 'chill out'. The recreation centre is supervised and is only available to our students.

I really enjoyed my time in Ireland! The Blended Programme gave me good experiences, meeting new people, learning a new culture and language. I learned a lot at the Irish Wheelchair Association Carlow where I did my internship. I also learned a lot studying the Human Growth and Development and Work placement module. The time flew because we were having so much fun. I can't believe it's already over but I will never forget it. Blended Programme thanks for everything!


The Blended Programme was great! It was an amazing combination of the internship and college. I've learned so much at school about Human Growth and Development. My internship was great and all the Irish people are amazing! Sean, Danny and Claire helped us when we needed them, they were fantastic. Thanks for everything, this is an experience I will always remember.


My experience with the Erasmus+ Blended Programme is very positive. It gave me an opportunity to learn about Ireland, learn the English language but also I learned to be more independent. Supervisors from the Blended Programme, teachers from school and my colleagues from Hillview Nursing home helped me with everything. Blended Programme thanks for this amazing experience I will never forget it.
