European Day of Languages
On the 25th of September we celebrated the European day of languages. The aim is to promote cultural and linguistic diversity and there was an special assembly for years 7. 8 and 9.
It was our own Eurovision contest with the following performances :
Georgia Mae Evans sang the Spanish version " Titanium " by David Guetta.
Theo Biddle sang the Spanish version of "Tomorrow" from "Annie" the musical.
Georgia Mae Evans and Logan Cording sang " Un mundo ideal" , the Spanish version of "A whole new world" from "Aladdin" , the movie from Disney Films.
The final performance was from six year 11 students ( Adam Lovell, Thomas Misson, Thomas Flowers, Hayley Martin, Wendy Westmoreland and Georgia Daskalaski) singing the French version of "Can you hear the people sing?" ( A la volonte du peuple) from the musical "Les Miserables".
All performances were technically managed for sound and vision by Nathan Purcell in year 9 and the performance received an outstanding ovation from an audience of almost 500 students!
In the afternoon two undergraduates from Leeds University came to deliver motivational chats to students from years 8 and 10 about the importance of language learning and opportunities for the future for those who decide to continue learning languages at GCSE and beyond.
