Saint Patrick's Day in our school

The 17th of March, Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated practically all around the world. Saint Patrick's Day is not a traditional celebration in Spain but this is one of the most important Irish festivals.

One of our main objectives when we talk about English language teaching is to know more about Anglosaxon culture and customs. Because of that, the English teachers department of our school prepare every year a celebration in which our pupils can know more, not only, about English, but also about other cultures answering some of these questions:

  • Why do they celebrate?

  • How do they do?

  • Main Halloween characters.

  • Halloween songs and traditions.

  • And more.

For this, the last 16th of March the whole school was decorated with this thematic. As you can see in the following pictures, all the classes participate on it:

Apart from the decoration, this day we prepared a special day in which our pupils:

  • They could make Saint Patrick's Day crafts.

  • They could prepare a shamrock brooch.

  • They could participate on the preparation of the decoration.

To end, we want to show you a video in which you can see a sum about our Saint Patrick's Day celebration

A Project for students, teachers and the whole school community.
