Last Friday, a Brazilian Culture Day was held at the school. The aim of the day was to explore and celebrate aspects of Brazilian culture right here in the middle of Cork! As part of our Brazil Day everyone in the school was encouraged to wear Brazilian colours, so green and yellow dominated throughout the school for the day!
Throughout the day we sampled some Brazilian treats and our students from Brazil were delighted to have a day at the school in celebration of their culture. The highlight of the day was Patrick’s Capoeira demonstration in The Wellington Room after class. Patrick from our teaching staff is a Capoeira enthusiast and participates at national level for Ireland. He gave an enthralled audience an insight into the history and background of Capoeira followed by an impressive demonstration with his sidekick, Gringo. Those in attendance got an impressive display of the martial art and some students even expressed interest in taking up Capoeira as a result!
