Intercultural Day 2012

June 17, 2012

Irish table

Our Intercultural day was on the 15th June. Everyone wore clothes that represented their countries. You could wear colours that represented your country. So we had a very colourful day !!

Every class visited the exhibits from Poland, China, Hungary, United States , Wales, France, Sri Lanka and Ireland.  They were able to find out more about all these countries  when they visited the exhibits.

We are very grateful to the parents who set up these exhibits providing food, vegetables and fruits , pictures and powerpoint presentations  belonging to their country. The real experience of a different culture is to taste their food!  Pupils enjoyed the taste of cheese and chocolate from Ireland, rice cakes from the Si Lanka, sausage and cheese from Poland, chocolate cookies  from the U.S. and broiche  bread from France. Thanks to Mrs Creedon and Mrs O’Callaghan and Mrs Cronin for  your help in organising this event.

Our Lady of Mercy Primary Sligo have some lovely songs about different countries of the world
