19/03/2009 EUROPEAN CELEBRATIONS AT LORETO COLLEGE

Thursday 19th March saw dual celebrations at Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, with the annual European Day organised by the College’s Modern Languages department.

Marking the European dimension, Year 8-10 students at the Castlerock Road school were able to join in a range of lively activities, from a Eurovision Song Contest in which all Year 8 students performed in French, German, Irish and Spanish to a multi-lingual game of bingo for all Year 9 students, to an intensely contested European table quiz for all Year 10 students.  Assistance at all these events was received from sixth form students from A level French, German and Irish classes.  Meanwhile, throughout all departments of the College, European themed lessons were taking place, with the theme of diversity being explored and a multi-lingual approach being taken to teaching and learning activities.

Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to Mrs Siobhan Mullan, European and Exchange Co-ordinator, and the members of the French, German, Irish and Spanish departments who had organised the day’s events.
