In our school there are many different nationalities. Students are from places such as Ireland, Philippines, America, India, Canada, Nigeria, Mauritius, Poland, Angola, Libya, Australian and lots more! This makes our school a very vibrant place, as we get to know different people and different cultures!
Here are the flags of the countries that we are from:

We have a “Culture Club” in our school where we talk about lot’s of cultures and organise an international day to raise awareness about the great cultural varieties at Loreto College Crumlin.
It also gives us a chance to meet people from different countries, learn about many different traditions and compare it to how it differs from our own tradition.
Valerie, Sorcha and I (Janine) are all from different countries! We learned a lot of things from each other and became good friends!
In school we also have a class where people from different countries learn English as an additional language. This class helps them to improve their English language skills and become fluent speakers.
Coming from different countries means we all have different traditions such as different traditional dances. Here are pictures of some:
A traditional Filipino dance
A traditional Nigerian dance
A traditional Irish dance
We also have different traditional foods:
The 'coddle' from Dublin
The Filipino Acado
A traditional Nigerian dish.
We hope you learned something about the different cultures and traditions at Loreto College Crumlin.
