Yellow Flag Update

Thu, Mar 16th, 2017

The Yellow Flag initiative is ongoing this year in Holy Family, building on the initial work carried out in 2016 in which we held Multicultural Day, among other events. This year we are continuing our commitment to diversity and multiculturalism by having a number of different ongoing initiatives which have strengthened our community spirit. Most notably, there is a different Language of the Week presented to students via intercom each Thursday – here students with a particular cultural background teach their peers simple terms from their native tongue. We have had students with German, Nigerian, Bosnian and Latvian backgrounds all speak so far. To coincide with Seachtain na Gaeilge, we also had a student teach some Irish words to the school!!
Another ongoing initiative are the class projects on a represented culture. Each classroom was allocated 5 projects at the start of the year on a culture identified by a student within the class – in this way the children can teach their peers about their cultural background supported by teacher lessons within the SESE curriculum. These have proved to be very successful as evidenced by many colourful Yellow Flag boards outside different classrooms.
