On Tuesday, it was our German Day with the Goethe-Institut team coming in to run their German Language Game for S1 pupils. Again, teachers dressed in the German colours and in particular the German football fanzine base went down a storm.
Wednesday was our Spanish Day as well as our European Breakfast for school staff from 7.45am – 8.45am with donations going towards sending our S6 Euroscola students to Strasbourg this year. Staff could choose from croissants, pastries, tea and coffee to get their day started and again the modern languages staff were dressed to the nines to celebrate Spanish Day.
Finally on Thursday we celebrated our Italian Day with classroom events to promote all things Italian including a fantastic PowerPoint and talk by Niall one of the Strathclyde University Ambassadors. A big thanks has to go to Cédric at the University of Strathclyde for helping the department out with the University Language Ambassadors who came in every day to promote language learning to our pupils. Each Ambassador spoke about their language experiences and where they are now on their language journey. We were fortunate to have Declan, Dorothea and Niall who all made their own impression on our pupils and students.
How many sleeps until European Day of Languages 2016?
