European Day of Languages

European Day of Languages

Once again, the students and staff at Senior School celebrated the European Day of Languages with a wide range of exciting activities and entertainment. The celebration helps to remind students of the importance of languages in learning about new cultures, traditions and customs, gives them a better understanding of other nationalities and religions, and broadens their general knowledge.

The morning began with a quiz during form time, which really got everyone into the spirit of the day.

In PE, students took part in a range of ‘Euro’ sports and even had the opportunity to learn Zumba and our aspiring chefs in Food Technology cooked up some delicious dishes including a Ratatouille and Spaghetti Bolognaise.

At lunchtime we had a guest speaker, Silke Engelbart from UCLan, who spoke to our students about studying languages and why they are important in the world of work.

But of course the highlight of the day was the fantastic European themed lunch provided by Thomas Franks. Students and staff were able to sample traditional cuisine from France, Italy, Germany, Spain and of course England. What a fabulous spread!
