A major innovation and a first for Garbally this year was the introduction of Chinese to the curriculum. We contacted the Confusius Institute in U.C.D. and after much negotiation we managed to liaise with Ms Jinx. She works with other schools in the area and manages to visit the College every forth night. The programme is a mixture of language culture and history.
As Chinese is now the second largest economy in the world and is known as the “Workshop of the World” it is appropriate that our students manage to get a taste of China. We have laid important foundations and hopefully these will be built on over the coming years.
