My name is Esther I am fifteen years old and I am from Spain. I am staying here in Ireland for the school year. I am a transition year student at Athlone Community College. As part of my transition year programme. I am working here at Shannon Academy for one week. I work with Caoimhe, Aisling, Annette and Tory, I settled in right away, they made me feel very comfortable.

My work here involves many different aspects. I organised all the books and the uniforms for the academy. I then had to transfer all the information onto the computer system. I prepared some of the bus passes for the students, on each pass I had to put the student’s name and other information such as their host family address, contact number and the bus stop name. I translated a letter from Spanish to English for the academy. I also helped prepare for St. Patrick’s day which allowed me to get a little creative.

My experience working here was excellent and I would like to thank Caoimhe and all the staff working at Shannon Academy for helping me out and making it such an enjoyable experience.
