The purpose of this study was to determine if an in-service would help the staff gain knowledge and experience in dealing and interacting with different languages and cultures that are represented in the school.
The staff was given an in-service, part of which placed them in different situations and required them to think and react to how they felt in that situation. There was a group of twenty students from different languages and cultures. The students spoke on how they felt being in a country where they did not understand the new culture and language. There was also a question and answer session for staff and students.
The findings from this in-service confirmed that the staff is in favor of having this type of in-service. They especially enjoyed the input from the students. The staff felt that the students are an untapped resource for them in learning about different cultures and languages represented in the school.
