European Languages Day

Posted: 29th September 2016

College and Prep pupils at Mount Kelly marked European Day of Languages with a variety of fun events and learning challenges.

College pupils came in mufti, with many dressing in the colours of a national flag, and they enjoyed French crepes at break-time (with all proceeds raised going towards a European refugee camp). In their language lessons they did the Duolingo Challenge, whereby they learned a new and different language from scratch within a given time.

Prep pupils looked at lots of different languages in the day and focussed on communicating in Makaton during tutor time. They took part in a break-time treasure trail, finding out how to say "hello" in ten different countries.  Mrs Brown treated her Year 7 Spanish class to 'tortitas con chocolate y nata' and South American 'panqueques con dulce de leche y nata'.

All pupils enjoyed a delicious European-themed lunch; College staff and pupils took part in a French Flashmob dance, le Madison, and the highlight of the day for Prep pupils was a fantastic Greek dance workshop led by dance teacher Caroline Chapman.
