ARDEE Educate Together NS recently took part in Multicultural and Anti-Racism Week.
The school invited its international parents into classes to cook their traditional food for pupils to taste.
The food was delicious. Pupils, parents and staff dressed up in different national costumes from various countries. This is always a colourful display and it really is amazing to see the lengths that some people will go to just to get their costumes exactly right.
They had music and dance from around the world pupils from every continent. Their international parents spoke about the customs and traditions in their various countries. This is all very useful in their project work.
This year the theme of sport was added to the celebrations. This has proved to be a very big hit with pupils.
The most popular sports in each of the countries were represented.
There was international sports and games with cricket from India, baseball from America, soccer from Europe and Africa, just to mention a few.
Louth Leader Partnership provided a Show Racism the Red Card workshop given by Gareth Mullen.
They had a visit from the huge man sized mascot Jeff the Ref the big brown dog who will referee our friendly football match.
So it was very much fun and games during Multicultural Week at Ardee Educate Together N.S.
The school like to thank Louth Leader Partnership for their continued help, support and funding which very much helps to make our Multicultural Week such a success.
