Up Mayo!

We want to wish Mayo the best of luck on Saturday the 1st of October as they take on Dublin again for the All Ireland Football Final replay in Croke Park. Kick off is at 5pm. Let’s hope Mayo will lift the Sam Maguire cup.
Have a look at Mr Duffy and his brother Mark rapping “In the Name of Mayo” to get you in the spirit of the match. The second video features 5th class.

Multicultural Report, June 2016

June 19th  was our designated Annual International Day in Scoil Naomh Bríd, Culleens. This year it was different in that it was a fundraiser for our new school and involved other fun activities as well as food stalls. It took place on Sunday as opposed to a school day and had the added dimension of whole families attending. Despite the weather there was a good attendance and the atmosphere was cheerful and colourful.

Seventeen parents from the various countries volunteered to cook the food and   present authentic traditional dishes from around the world on the day, reflecting the various ethnic heritages that make up our school community.  The result was that, as before, the school managed to expose the children as well as adults to a wealth of cultures from around the world through food. Also it was a great experience for the whole school community to get together and learn about each other and from each other.  The children played together and got involved in the various fun activities that entertained them for the afternoon.

This was a fun day for the whole school and for whole families and an opportunity to get to know and understand the richness of the various cultures that make up our school community.

In accordance with our multicultural ethos, Culleens School acknowledges differences while simultaneously promoting acceptance of all.

Food was also generously sponsored by local restaurants – The Everest Restaurant, Dillon’s Restaurant and The Merry Monk, while the Coffee Vine provided the equipment for the food stalls as well as teas and coffees.

A special Thank-You to all who helped make the day a success.

Suggestions are welcome from parents and children for future multicultural projects.
I ndiaidh a chéile a thógtar na caisleáin.

Multicultural Coordinator
