Mind your language

27 September 2017

The Senior School celebrated Tuesday's European Day of Languages in a number of ways, including a language-themed Prayers in which Mandarin, Scottish Gaelic and Telugu were spoken.

Mrs Clements opened proceedings with a beautiful song in Italian.

Girls with another language then greeted the School in their other tongue, explaining what it was and how they came to speak it.  The Main Hall heard ten different languages, a great reflection of the world's linguistic diversity.

Year 7 students enjoyed a morning of language-themed workshops, including learning Japanese and playing a 'Borrowed Words' game - which languages does English borrow pretzel and boomerang from?
