Celebrating European Languages Day

The Academy is buzzing with activities today (26th Sept, 2014) to celebrate European Languages Day.
  • The Years 12,13 and 14 assemblies will all be multilingual.
  • Orders in Exit 14 will be exclusively in Italian with some relaxing Italian Cafe music and Pavarotti lending some ambience. Buon Appetito!
  • Lunch in the canteen will be full of international flavour with a delicious array of dishes from around the globe. Bon Appétit! There will be wonderful background music while you sample the international cuisine including “Let it go” from the film “Frozen” in 25 European languages, Indila-Dernière Danse and a variety of pop songs as Gaelige.
  • We are very privileged to have mass celebrated at 1:05pm in the Oratory. It will be multilingual (including French, Irish, Spanish, Polish, Lithuanian, Slovakian, Russian and Indian) and multicultural throughout. All are welcome. A very big thank you to the R.E. Department for making it possible. The choir’s beautiful rendition of “Esto les Digo” will be played during the Mass-thanks to the Music Department.
  • The Art Department have produced wonderful displays in the front foyer.
  • The Science Department are highlighting some very thought provoking quotes from renowned scientists and inventors in their own language including Albert Einstein, Louis Pasteur and Leonardo Da Vinci.
  • The Business Studies Department will be analysing the importance of the Euro.
  • The Careers Department are promoting some really interesting careers in languages.
  • The English Department are examining Greek terminology in Greek Tragedy and analysing the translation and interpretation from the original French in their study of “L’Étranger” by Albert Camus and are focussing on some Seamus Heaney poems for National Poetry Day on Thursday 2nd October.  Heaney was so well versed in languages – who could ever forget his final communiqué “Noli timere”?
