Cirencester Kingshill School pupils are inspired to learn foreign languages
Pupils at Cirencester Kingshill School celebrated the European Day of Languages on Tuesday 26th September with a number of activities that saw some pupils learning how to say good morning and good afternoon in 29 different languages and had teachers taking the register in a foreign language.
Year 7 pupils had the opportunity to take part in a 'Great European Bake Off' competition and the entries were sold off as part of a European themed cake sale held in aid of Macmillan. The bake sale raised over £139. Pupils also got to enjoy having their face painted with a European flag of their choice during break time.
The purpose of the day, which is celebrated all over Europe, was to emphasise to pupils the importance of being able to speak more than one language. Christine Oates, Headteacher said “We want pupils to be equipped to succeed in the world when they leave Cirencester Kingshill School. With the number of English speakers throughout the world on the decrease it is more important than ever for our pupils to understand the importance of studying one or more foreign language.”« Back to news
