Raising Cultural Awareness at St Paul’s


St Paul’s recently hosted a cultural awareness event which was funded through the CRED enhancement scheme.

The CRED enhancement scheme has been designed to support school and youth settings in the implementation of the CRED policy.

The criterion for funding is taken directly from the CRED indicators which accompany the Department of Education CRED policy.

The event was held in the St Paul’s Assembly Hall during which non-national students set up stalls with information about their culture, artefacts, traditional clothing, sample dishes and traditional customs.

Year 8 students from St Paul’s, St Joseph’s High School, Crossmaglen and Newtownhamilton High School, then had the opportunity to visit in small groups and take part in activities and listen to interesting facts about each culture.

It is hoped that the event will promote an awareness and appreciation of the different cultures within the local community and help our students develop a mindset that embraces diversity.
