Connelly School of the Holy Child in Potomac, MD, organized its Irish exchange program with Holy Child Killiney in Dublin. Three sophomores from Potomac — Tess Williams, Jillian Geils, and Addie Robinson — participated in this year’s exchange.
The sophomores traveled to Ireland on February 12, and were hosted by families in Dublin. On March 19, they returned to school in Potomac with exchange students from Killiney.
Addie Robinson ’20 shares, “It was so much fun to meet my other Holy Child sisters from all over the world. I loved exploring Ireland and am so grateful I got to go!”
