Celebrating Cultural Diversity

Challenge to Change : The fourth class girls in Mrs Brennan’s class are taking part in the Challenge to Change Project. The topic is: An Inclusive World-Celebrating Diversity-Interculturalism. The girls have made many interesting discoveries about the customs, traditions and festivals celebrated by children from different cultures in our school community. They have learned about equality, inclusion and integration. Their main focus was on human rights and visual impairments. As 2018 is the 300th birthday celebration year of Nano Nagle,the founder of the Presentation Order, her motto to “enable” and to “empower” was forefront in their minds.

National Dress Day: February 14th -everybody was invited to wear clothes that represent their national dress.
