European Day of Languages and Culture

Year 8 pupils enjoyed a special day off timetable, and were given the chance to explore some key issues surrounding this topical subject and to have the opportunity to sample different languages (Italian and Ancient Greek) putting their transferable linguistic skills to the test.

The day began with a traditional continental breakfast and quiz in Big School; pupils thoroughly enjoyed their pains au chocolat and hot chocolate.  This was followed by a question and answer session with an expert panel in the Library Annexe with the focus on UK and Europe: past, present and future.  Year 8 pupils certainly challenged the panel with some thought-provoking questions.
