"If you talk to a person in a language they understand, that goes to their head. If you talk to them in their own language, that goes to their heart." Nelson Mandela
September saw the Modern Foreign Languages Department host their annual series of events to celebrate the diversity of Languages that exist throughout Europe as part of European Day of Languages. Form classes from Year 7 to Year 13 went head to head in the Form Quiz with the winners pictured below. A new competition this year saw Year 8 students take part in a "Guess the teacher quiz" The winning team comprised of Josh, Luke, Thomas and Aaron who successfully answered such questions as "Which teacher can say the Hail Mary in French?" and "Which teacher has taught in Holland?"
Similar to previous years students also saw their teacher greet them in different European languages and they were able to hear stories and anecdotes from their teachers about their own language learning journeys.
