SLS Rules 

Students on the Summer Language School are expected to follow the SLS Rules while at the school and on organised trips and activities. Our Behaviour Policies can be found under Policies IE.

These rules apply to all students and teachers, and form part of the Student Agreement on the Enrolment Form. Any mobile phones or electronic equipment, that hasn’t been handed in and is found to be used during the day, will be taken by the teachers or the SLS director, and will be returned at the end of the day.


Irish Licensing & Smoking Laws

In Ireland it is forbidden by law to sell alcohol to people under the age of 18. You can enter a pub (bar) if you are between 14-18 (if the bar manager allows this), but not to consume alcohol, only to play pub games and drink non-alcoholic drinks. It is also illegal for young people under 18 to buy cigarettes or tobacco. Our school is a totally smoke-free zone, and this includes the grounds. Most of our host families are also non-smokers, so if students smoke, they may be asked to do so outside. Anyone who appears to be under 25 will be asked for identification if they try to buy either alcohol or cigarettes.


PLEASE NOTE: If a student is involved in drunkenness, illegal drugs, shoplifting or other inappropriate behaviour, the SLS director will be informed immediately. Serious misconduct of a student may lead to an immediate return home (in such cases there will be no refund and fares will be charged to the student’s own family). Such occurrences have luckily been extremely rare.
