Salesian Secondary School 5th Multicultural Day 

 

Salesian Secondary School had its 5th Multicultural Day as part of its celebration of Seachtain na Gaeilge and as a recognition of the rich tapestry of diversity that forms Irish society today. The school has 35 students from 14 different countries including Angola, Congo, Mozambique, China, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovakia, Morocco, South Africa, Cameroon, Somalia, Nigeria and Moldova.The Salesian Secondary School believe in the importance of each individual student and feel that allowing parents, students, staff and the local community an opportunity to learn about the various cultures that make up the fabric of modern Irish society would be an educational and enriching experience for all involved.

In the morning the students displayed information about their countries and cultures, flags, maps, history, geography and traditional instruments, which was the culmination of several months work. Students from Salesian Primary and Secondary Schools and St Nessans Community College, parents, guests and friends were given the opportunity to learn, ask questions and participate in a multicultural quiz. Food was prepared by the students and their families and guests had the opportunity to sample these culinary delights. Many of the girls were in traditional costumes on the day.  In the afternoon a variety concert was held with Leon Anderson kicking off with some magic tricks to wow the audience. Sixmilebridge Folk Group was next on stage followed by Irish and modern dance and musical treats from around the world. The ethos of Salesian Secondary School promotes inclusion and integration and this event does both.
