Monastery NS Multicultural Day - Thursday, 07 April 2011

As part of Louth Schools' Intercultural and Antiracism Week Monastery NS, Ardee recently hosted a “Multicultural Day” in their school. The highlight event of the day was a multicultural exhibition in their Gym with pupils manning different stands for different countries. Each stand had samples of information about the country, samples of its food and music, national flag etc. Every class in the school visited the exhibition and it provided the boys with an understanding of the cultural diversity in Ireland today.

The flags of many countries were displayed high above the Gym floor and boys from Monastery NS Choir sang the Michael Jackson song, “We are the World”. The parents of our newcomer children provided an amazing variety of food including Hungarian Goulash, Latvian dumplings, Nigerian rice dishes, Russian crisps, Malaysian savories, Moldovan desert cake etc. All of the classes thoroughly enjoyed sampling the many different foods from around the world.

The day was co-ordinated by Language Support Teacher Ms Brigid O’Hare and ably assisted by other staff members. Ms Maxwell’s fifth class manned all the international stands and provided information to all the exhibition visitors.

Monastery National School would like to acknowledge the support and funding of Louth Leader Partnership which is an independent company established and supported by the Irish Government and the European Union.
