Europe Day Event 2019

 

May 9th in St. Oliver's Community College was filled with festivities to celebrate Europe Day! We were lucky enough to be provided a grant by Léargas to host a European Youth Week event. Our students got their thinking caps on and we decided to host a European Food Event. We invited MEP Mairead McGuinness to come and speak to us about democracy and her experiences of being a Member of the European Parliament.
We prepared presentations about our recent cultural exchange to Spain (thanks to funding from Languages Connect) and our visit to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France. 
As a European Parliament Ambassador School, the Junior Ambassadors took their roles very seriously. They created beautiful artwork, posters and displays to celebrate European Youth Week. We used the fund provided by Leargas to create displays and purchase food and drink for our European Food Event. 
We were delighted to be able to offer a European-themed lunch to our special visitor, MEP McGuinness together with our VP Ms Kirk and other members of staff and students. We were thrilled to hear Ms McGuinness talk to us about democracy, the need for compromise in today's world and the importance of the young voice in politics.
