We are the mothers of 15 & 16 year-old teenagers who have been in Skibbereen this 2019-2020 academic year,for Transition Year, with Richie and Claire (ELP). We are very appreciative of the treatment received from the first moment and especially during their Programme there. We want to emphasise their speed and effective management in reaction to the situation generated by the COVID-19 pandemic. In every moment, daily, we were informed of the development of the situation in Ireland and the different options available for our daughters. Despite everything, the overall evaluation of their stay with their Irish families, school and their personal experience is very positive. It has been worth it!
