International Day 2012

Yesterday we had our annual International Day Celebration in the school. There are 17 different nationalities represented within our school and they all had  stand in the hall. Pupils, families and teachers all enjoyed the wonderful displays and the scrumptious food that was available for all to taste. We would like to thank everyone involved for all the effort and time that went in to making the day a great success. Well done to Ms. Redmond and all of the pupils involved.

As well as the parents we had some special guest on the day. These included Ms Tanya Flanagan from Modern Languages in Primary Schools Initiative  [MLPSI], and Mrs. Fahy from the parents association. Both praised the work that has been undertaken by the school since it started teaching German in the school and spoke about the benefits of teaching a foreign language within primary schools. They expressed disappointment that the ending of the MLPSI would result in foreign languages not been taught in primary schools during class time from the 30th of June 2012.
