Declan and his family were up at 4.00am to talk to us - it was 3.00pm in Australia. They were just starting their day and we were at the end of our school day. Declan's family have just arrived in Ireland and are still adjusting to the time difference.
The Preps thought about questions to ask Declan and they spoke very clearly. Some of the questions were:
Have you seen any animals?
Declan said he had seen 200 cows! He is staying in a cottage on a farm.
What is the weather like?
It was 0 degrees and yesterday Declan saw snow! Ireland is very cold at the moment.
Are you having a good holiday?
What have you been doing on your holiday?
We miss you!
Declan asked us about our day and we told him we what we had been doing.
It was so lovely to see Declan's smiling face (and Ashling's and Conor's) and remember he was half way across the world! Thanks for skyping with us!
Have you ever used skype to talk to family or friends?
