Scoil ChaitrÃona is an Irish language school on Mobhi Road in Glasnevin.
On Monday, November 22, students celebrated fun language activities in six languages: Irish, Spanish, German, French, Japanese and some English.
A very special guest that day, Teresa, brought traditional Spanish âdulcesâ or sweets from Madrid.
There followed a football tournament between the best French, German and Spanish five-a-side teams.
It was a very tense and exciting all-Spanish final. Long live Spain !
The students then connected to a Think Languages ââworkshop to learn a Brazilian martial art called âCapoieraâ, even the teacher did!
Those who love art have created a very impressive interior mural of the anti-war painting “Guernica” by Pablo Picasso.
The pupils had two hours to make this mural to be permanently displayed in their class.
One group even attended a workshop on how Irish Sign Language works.
The main event of the day was the European quiz, kindly sponsored by the local coffee truck “Bua”, as alumni they very generously donated â¬ 10 in vouchers to the winners.
Spanish teacher at Scoil ChaitrÃona, Nora Kielty, was delighted with how the day unfolded.
“What a great day for the students of Scoil ChaitrÃona to think about languages ââand be part of a European celebration of culture and linguistic diversity,” she told Northside People.
âIt was really a great day for linguistic diversity in European secondary schools today. All the languages ââare amazing.
âI also want to thank the Bua Boys for kindly sponsoring the quiz prizes.
âA local business working with local schools to make Think Languages ââDay a real winner for everyone. “
