Celebrating Languages Week

Languages Week is an enjoyable, productive and inter-cultural experience and this year was no exception! Around the School, classrooms and areas were labelled in three different languages, English, Japanese and French, and the overall theme of the week was animation.

With the recent explosion in popularity of Pokémon Go, students were encouraged to take part in Pokémon activities each morning during Home Group, in class and during recess. On Friday, students in Year 7 participated in the big Pokémon Pokédex Challenge which saw them finding as many Pokémon characters as they could that were hidden around the School.

During the week our students enjoyed a visit from other comic book heroes, this time of the Nordic variety as Asterix and Obelix shared gateau and Japanese biscuits with the Year 7 students. In Year 8 French students were challenged to create a famous French landmark out of colourful straws while the Students in Year 8.2 French celebrated their win as the champion class in the recent Language Perfect World Championships. They were awarded the trophy and celebrated with pain au chocolat and chocolat chaud. 

To round the week off our students in Years 9 to 12 participated in the ACER National Examination while the senior French students also sat the Alliance Française Examination. All in all it was a busy week! Thankyou to the Languages teachers for their extra dedication and work in this successful week!
