Pupils Celebrate Languages Day
Pupils from our First to Sixth Forms enjoy a packed programme of linguistic and cultural activities.
Pupils from our First to Sixth Forms celebrated Languages Day (27 September), with a packed programme of linguistic and cultural activities - as well as a delicious international lunch with highlights including ‘la salade’, ‘Ispaniška pomidorų sriuba’ and ‘jamón horneado a la italiana con orégano, patatas al ajillo asadas y salteado de calabacÍn’.
The day’s activities included a special assembly, fun language quizzes in tutor time, a Duolingo challenge, lunchtime MFL karaoke and a cake sale in aid of the British Red Cross Libya Floods Appeal and Morocco Earthquake Appeal. There was also a dedicated modern foreign languages book display in the Vanbrugh Library and a ‘Crack the Code’ languages competition.
Kimbolton Languages Day was inspired by a Council of Europe initiative, the “European Day of Languages”, which has been celebrated every year since 2001. The main message of that event is that language skills are a necessity and a right for everyone, young and old, opening up opportunities and helping us to understand each other better.
