We enjoyed a fantastic week celebrating Refugee Week with our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) students.

To celebrate our students unique and diverse cultures, staff and students came together for a celebration afternoon, where the students brought in a range of homemade traditional dishes for their classmates and tutors to try.

On the menu was Mirza Ghassemi an Iranian appetizer, Elderflower juice a traditional Romanian drink known as “Socata”, Spicy Chicken traditional to Chad, and Zigni a traditional stew of Eritrean cuisine.

It was great to see lots of smiling faces, as the students made new friends, danced to traditional music, shared stories and expressed their new language skills.

During the week, our ESOL team also attended the Communities Together Event in St Helens Town Centre, meeting prospective students and coming together as a community to celebrate the diversity within St Helens.
