International Language & Culture Day

The highlight of the school year for international students is the annual Language & Culture Day. Students put great effort into preparing their displays, posters and presentations. All first-year students get the opportunity to meet the international students and learn about their diverse home languages and countries. They gain an insight into the rich and vibrant cultural and linguistic mosaic that characterises our school environment. Observing the different alphabets, sampling beginner lessons in many different languages is an inspiring experience for the Irish students.

Last year’s International Language & Culture Day at MEC was a great success. Students from many countries shared videos, posters, projects, beginner language lessons, and food dishes with students from each first-year class. It was a vibrant and colourful celebration of the language and cultural diversity at MEC.
