St. Mary's Deaf Choir were honoured to be awarded with The European Language Label (ELL). Which is an annual award given to individuals or projects that demonstrate outstanding promotion and teaching of languages. In 2014 and 2015 the priorities were:
Languages for Social Inclusion
Languages and Sport
Languages as part of Lifelong Learning
Last year we applied for the award and two judges came to our school to interview Ms. Higgins and two students (Robyn Quigley and Aimee Ennis Mcloughlin). We heard during the summer that we had received the award. It was a huge honour and a fantastic day was had by the girls who represented our school collecting the award in Farmleigh House on Friday 25th September. It is great to see all the hard work paying off.
