Celebrating Diversity across Europe on #eTwinning Day, 9 May!

From 18 April to 9 May, eTwinning wanted to find out how young people across Europe felt about diversity through the #eTwinning4Diversity campaign. Teachers and students across Europe organised activities in their schools to celebrate on the day.

A big thank you to all the schools that organised activities for eTwinning Day on the 9th May. On Facebook this week we’re highlighting just two of them:

St Michael’s Boys’ School, Mervue, Galway, organised an International/Europe Day to celebrate diversity. They organised a wonderful range of activities on the day, including a feast of delicious dishes from countries around the world. Students made posters with lots of information about various countries and created colourful mosaics of stickers as they showed on different maps where they and their families have come from.

In Our Lady of Fatima School, Wexford, the students had a great day doing all sorts of activities: in-class exercises, a Lip Sync Eurovision Battle, Europe and eTwinning cake, Europe Anthem, Europe Table Quiz and a Euro Disco!

Check our eTwinning Day Photo Album for more great photos.

On a European level, there were over 500 videos posted on the ‘Celebrate Diversity’ campaign page from schools all over Europe with 20 events organised by eTwinners to celebrate diversity with a total of 700 sign-ups. A special thank you to Maynooth Post Primary School and Killorglin Community College for uploading videos to eTwinning Live as part of the campaign.
