Coláiste Bríde in Enniscorthy has celebrated an annual initiative called Inter Culture Day which highlighted the cultural diversity that exists within the school.

The event was a great success and a spokesperson for the school said there was an electric atmosphere around the facility on the day.

'It was a resounding success with a huge sense of fun,' she said.

Students from 29 different nationalities showcased the best aspects of their respective native country's cultures and that diversity added to the overall interest and entertainment of the event.

'There were stalls to appeal to all of the senses,' said the spokesperson.

Students showcased beautiful displays of artefacts, personal belongings, posters and flags. A significant aspect of the day was how the students and teachers fully embraced the opportunity to taste new food and learn about the different cultures represented in the school.

The spokesperson said the day was 'engaging' for all concerned and the cultural representatives were very enthusiastic in how they presented the story of their native or ancestral countries.

The organisers thanked the students for supporting the event.
