Multi-Cultural Week 2017
Multicultural Week will run from Monday to Friday (13th-17th) next week with lots of exciting activities planned. We have children and parents from over 27 countries in our school. Each class has been allocated a country to learn about and explore.
Second class (rm 9) have had a very busy couple of weeks with multicultural week, preparing for our first confession, playing in the snow, raising money for the Caroline Foundation and going on a school tour to The Little Museum of Dublin. Here are some pictures to keep you updated of all our exciting times.
Well, Multicultural Week has come to an end and wow a success!! Every class put in a massive effort and took part in numerous events during the week.
Well done to all the girls from Junior Infants to 6th class, who graced the catwalk on Tuesday in their traditional costumes and colourful outfits, You can find a video of the fashion shows in our VIDEO section.
Each class represented their country and competed against each other in an obstacle course on Tuesday. A big thank you to Lana, Hannah R, Lauren, Ellen, Emily B, Shannon, Emma, Ellen C, Lucie and Rachel who are all members of the Active Schools Committee. These girls did an excellent job organising and setting up the obstacle course for the whole school.
Displays in the Hall:
On Wednesday and Thursday, our school hall was transformed into a temporary museum, displaying all the work each class had done while researching their assigned country. Some class made posters, some painted beautiful artworks inspired by an artist from their country. Other classes made traditional food from their country and others displayed traditional costumes. Each class visited the museum and had their passport stamped as they traveled around the world on an information fueled journey.
A BIG thank you to all the parents who visited us during Multicultural Week to give talks, look at the displays and lots more. We hope you enjoyed the whole experience just as much as we did.
We will be uploading many, many photographs to our Photo Gallery over the next little while, be sure to check them out!

Multicultural Week Assembly
We started off our week with an assembly for Multicultural Week. Multicultural week will be running from Monday to Thursday this week, with lots of exciting activities planned. Ms. Burke told us that we have children and parents from over 21 countries in our school. Wow! Ms. McGrath then showed us a lovely powerpoint and went through the countries of the different classes and the exciting schedule she had organised for the classes.
Then we sang our songs that we had learned for the special week.
Junior Infants- 2nd class sang 'The More We Get Together' and the 3rd-6th classes sang 'Everyone Belongs' (Diversity).
