EUROPEAN Languages Week, from October 7-11, was a heady cultural mixture of words, food and activity at Scoil Mhuire, where both French and German are taught.
Students participated in a variety of events including a European food fair at breaktime on Monday. Students enjoyed some wonderful French cuisine as well as German frankfurters and cakes, Polish delicacies, Italian pastas and pizza and Irish brown bread and black pudding.
The Transition Year students visiting from Spain made Spanish Omelettes, which went down a treat.
The Food Fair was organised by the Transition Year students.
There was great interest in the poster competition for junior students and well done to the winners: First Year - Orla Gillespie and Second Year Eve O'Shaughnessy.
The week also saw students watching French and German films.
Other activities included a quiz and bingo in French and German, basketball, soccer and a European coffee morning.
The winning quiz team members were Ronan Buckley, Rachel O'Riordan, Gillian Power, Stephen Marshall, Orla Gillespie and Sean Hopkins.
Well done to the students and the language teachers for all their work in making European Languages Week such a success.
