    Castleknock College Dublin (Summer camp Oscars International) reviews

    Marc
    Dear Sir/Madam, We are a Secondary school in Spain and we are interested in sending a group of students (maximum number: 24 students) to Ireland next summer (beginning of July) for two weeks. We would like you to give us the following information. 1) Are there any special prices for groups? Are group leaders included in the price? Could you send me some information about prices? 2) We are interested in sending our students to host families and also we want them to attend lessons and afternoon/evening activities. Is that possible? 2) Could you send me a sample programme of non-academic activities including the weekends as well? 3) Would you offer us a transfer from/to the airport? 4) Our students are from 12 to 17 years old. Are there any legal differences among these ages in Ireland? 5) Do you test each student's level before starting the course? 6) Are group leaders hosted also in an Irish family? There will be two group leaders. Will they be hosted in the same family? 7) Is there a curfew time to be back home in the evening/night? We are looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. Best regards, Marc
