On the 16th of March, we celebrated International Day in St. Oliver's Community College. The day was hugely successful and great fun too. We were allowed to wear our national dress or something green if we preferred. St. Oliver's is home to many different nationalities and all were represented on March 16th. We got to sample foods from all over the world and the highlight was certainly the Talent Show. Well done to everyone involved!
Last Monday, TY Valley organized a European Soccer Match as part of the European Parliament Ambassador Schools Programme.
Our Junior Ambassadors were key in organizing this event so huge thanks to them.
We rounded up thirty students from St Oliver's and named our two teams Germany and Spain. Congratulations to Germany, captained by Pedro, who won 3-1.
We had great fun on the day and raised a lot of awareness about the importance of European Studies and other cultures.
The Model Council of Europe debate took place in Dublin Castle yesterday. Students from 28 schools in Ireland represented a different member state and debated Europe's number one challenge, migration.
Well done to our team Joseph Catlett, Jack Synott and Stephen Reid who made St. Oliver's proud. They were helped along by their dedicated teacher, Ms Barbara Carr.
