In the area that my school is located there are many Ukranian refugees living at the moment. As a school we have held coffee mornings and also collected for many items that have been requested by the local refugees.
The GAA club has been a huge help to all of those living locally and helped to ensure that they felt integrated into the local community. GAA clubs are such a staple in each parish and town in Ireland and always tend to ensure that everyone is included. It’s quite a unique association in that sense.
We also have an International Day each year where children learn about lots of different countries and cultures. Each class focus on one country and then present that country to the rest of the school. We also invite family members in to perform local dances, songs, give presentations on what life is like in their home country.
