Nations Week MORE THAN





WAS A GREAT WAY TO CELEBRATE THIS RICH MIXTURE OF CULTURES. Organised by the Language Department, the aim of All Nations¡Week was to promote an awareness and appreciation of other cultures and languages. The Year 8 students made presentations to their classes discussing or demonstrating some aspect of their own cultural background. Many interesting talks were given and of course some wonderful food tasted . During the language lessons, some of the students watched foreign films . Quizzes were given daily in administration , maths and science periods. A Mass was held for the Year 8 students and kept to the theme of All Nations Week with Father Hughes speaking about the teachings of Jesus where He asks us to love our neighbour. During the prayers of the faithful, some of the students presented prayers in another language. One of the best ways of experiencing another culture is through the stomach and so in keeping with this idea the school canteen provided some wonderful culinary delights in honour of All Nations week. The language teachers also helped with this by selling wonderful European chocolates and sushi. Needless to say the boys indulged themselves and thoroughly enjoyed the change . The Year 8 and Year 9 students were able to experience the wonderful art of pasta making. Students were able to have hands on experience at making and most importantly, eating the pasta. There was a focus throughout the week on looking at how people from other cultures have contributed to the lifestyle we now lead. All in all a great week was enjoyed by all.
