First Year Students, along with their German teacher Ms. Meadhbh Nash, organised an extremely successful Multicultural Week in Desmond College.

The week started with a presentation to the whole school, by two of the group, over the intercom system, where details of the week were outlined and the reasons why we, in Desmond College, believe it is important to celebrate the diversity of culturals who attend our school.

During the week students learned about and celebrated the different cultures, through talks and presentations, all given by the students themselves to their own peers.

The event encouraged a sharing of ideas, it helped cultural knowledge and understanding and helped to build confidence.

Students took part in Sports and Quiz events, and enjoyed a delicious food tasting afternoon- without doubt the most popular event with both staff and students! We are already looking forward to next year! Well done to all involved!
