Presentation College was delighted to welcome Mr. Robert Henneberg from the German Embassy to our school on Monday 13th September. Whether for travel, education, pleasure or employment, Mr. Henneberg, who speaks fluent English, French and Irish in addition to his native language of German, assured students that it will always be of value to work on one's language skills. There are of course increased opportunities in life for those who speak several languages. We would like to thank the German Embassy for valuing the importance of the young learners of German and French by supporting them with the interesting and educational visit and the gift of books..click on the heading for the full report and photos.
