Spotlight on Schools: Let’s Speak Ukrainian

In this edition of ‘Spotlight on Schools’, Áine O’ Donnell and Pearl Heneghan, teachers at Summerhill College, Sligo, demonstrate a whole school approach to welcoming Ukrainian students to the school community.

This project encouraged Irish students to learn the basics of the Ukrainian language to facilitate communication and to help Irish students appreciate the difficulty of arriving in an environment with little knowledge of the local language.

This project facilitated both linguistic and cultural discovery whilst also creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for the new Ukrainian students.  Learn more about this project below:
