European Day of Languages

European Languages celebrated at Westholme School

The European Day of Languages has been celebrated on 26th September every year since 2001. And Westholme certainly celebrates this special day in style! The day began with a European flavoured assembly, presented by Miss Widnall, Head of Spanish, and her team of linguists. Stephen Fry even made an appearance, and the daily hymn was replaced with a One Direction song in Spanish, which was led so beautifully by the Spanish band.

Quizzes were the order of the day, but the highlight, without a doubt, had to be the amazing continental buffet which the fabulous catering staff made for everyone.  Hotdogs; chorizo; calamares; schnitzel; moussaka; lamb kebabs – we were spoilt for choice!  Thank you to Mrs Ballan and her catering team for a wonderful lunch.

All in all, it was a veritable feast of European flavours and cultures, and another fantastic day for Westholme’s Modern Languages department.
