EDL 1stThe European Day of Languages is a day to celebrate the diversity of languages across Europe. We encourage our girls to see the beauty of a multilingual society and celebrate language heritage. Knowing even a few words of another language can help to understand and appreciate other cultures.

Our TY German students organised this year’s quiz and put great preparation into the event. They created great excitement in the Central Area with flags, fancy dress, stickers, and spot prizes. They got the girls thinking and working well as teams, all hoping to scoop one of the top spots and come away with some great prizes.EDL 2nd

MCs for the event were Mar Alfaro, Ellen Begley and Niamh Murray. The team of correctors were really kept on their toes to keep up with the pace so all teams knew where they sat on the leader board.

The victorious team – “Las Aves” were Ella Brady, Maija Dickie, Laura Fernandez Plaza and Dorothy Obikoya. With Eirinn Donohue, Tara Duignan, Niamh Hegarty and Aobha Kenny AKA “Les Lions” finishing 3rd.
