GAELTACHT RULES WILL BE EXPLAINED CLEARLY TO STUDENTS ON THEIR FIRST DAY. STUDENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO SPEAK ENGLISH DURING THE COURSE.  OUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS THIS RULE IS FIRM AND THOSE UNWILLING TO MAKE AN EFFORT TO SPEAK IRISH DURING THE COURSE WILL BE SENT HOME. WE DO NOT DO CLASS ROOM WORK BUT HAVE CONVERSATIONS AND FUN THROUGH IRISH, AS WITH NORMAL SCHOOL DISCIPLINE POLICIES MISBEHAVIOUR, VERBAL OR PHYSICAL INTIMIDATION , INTENTIONAL OR OTHERWISE WILL BE DEALT WITH ACCORDINGLY BY LEADERS. WE MAKE EVERY EFFORT THAT EACH STUDENT THOROUGHLY ENJOYS THE COURSE AND IS TREATED  FAIRLY AT ALL TIMES.  

ALL STUDENTS WILL NEED SWIMWEAR, SPARE RUNNERS FOR THE RIVER AND A WETSUIT.  A FULL CHANGE OF CLOTHES MUST BE LEFT IN THE STARS CLUB HOUSE FOR THE WEEK . IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE STUDENTS HAVE GOOD FOOTWEAR AND A RAIN COAT. ANY OTHER EQUIPMENT OR TOOLS WILL BE PROVIDED.  

THE STUDENTS WILL LEARN HOW TO LIGHT A FIRE, MAKE A SLINGSHOT, BUILD A SHELTER AND MUCH MUCH MORE, ALL THROUGH IRISH AND USING THE PRINCIPLES OF LEAVE NO TRACE.
