Coláiste Bríde stu­dents cel­e­brate cul­tural diver­sity with hugely suc­cess­ful event

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

COLÁISTE Bríde in En­nis­cor­thy has cel­e­brated an an­nual ini­tia­tive called In­ter Cul­ture Day which high­lighted the cul­tural diver­sity that ex­ists within the school.

The event was a great suc­cess and a spokesper­son for the school said there was an elec­tric at­mos­phere around the fa­cil­ity on the day.

‘It was a re­sound­ing suc­cess with a huge sense of fun,’ she said.

Stu­dents from 29 dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties show­cased the best as­pects of their re­spec­tive na­tive coun­try’s cul­tures and that diver­sity added to the over­all in­ter­est and en­ter­tain­ment of the event.

‘ There were stalls to ap­peal to all of the senses,’ said the spokesper­son.

Stu­dents show­cased beau­ti­ful dis­plays of arte­facts, per­sonal be­long­ings, posters and flags. A sig­nif­i­cant as­pect of the day was how the stu­dents and teach­ers fully em­braced the op­por­tu­nity to taste new food and learn about the dif­fer­ent cul­tures rep­re­sented in the school.

The spokesper­son said the day was ‘en­gag­ing’ for all con­cerned and the cul­tural rep­re­sen­ta­tives were very en­thu­si­as­tic in how they pre­sented the story of their na­tive or an­ces­tral coun­tries.

The or­gan­is­ers thanked the stu­dents for sup­port­ing the event.
