To celebrate this occasion, different activities were held around the school and the school community was actively encouraged to have a go at saying something in another language by members of our Languages Council and club leaders. Students were made welcome to attend our language clubs and enjoy a language that is not their mother tongue. All attempts by students and staff to communicate with others in a language they have learnt were appreciated.
Our excited winners of the Amazing Spanish Race were Nik Dean of 9AMD (first), Ishani Soni-Singh of 10AKM and Sophia Santayana of 10AKM (second), Hannah Richardson of 10ODR and Bree Souster of 10HGL (third).
This week was about realising that English is not enough in a world that is plurilingual. It is worthy of mention that many of our staff speak one or more of the languages that are on our school curriculum.
