Tuesday 26th September was the European Day of Languages. This is an event which is held across Europe and it celebrates linguistic diversity in Europe, encourages language learning and promotes intercultural understanding.
Brynteg School pupils celebrated this event on Tuesday 26th September through a range of activities held during the lunch break. These included an opportunity for pupils to learn greetings in Urdu, Hungarian, Thai, Chinese and Swedish as well as having their names written in Hindi as henna hand tattoos. A European café was held outside the language block at break and lunch time, with a range of tempting pastries on sale! The international photo booth proved popular with pupils too!
A special thanks goes to our ‘language teachers’ who enthused their fellow pupils to try out new languages and learn a little about other cultures. They are:
Hollie Chappell (year 12), Daniel Kun (year 8), Ahmed Farhan (year 7), Sophie Florence (year 7), Karnel Singh (year 7), Nicole Chong (year 10) and Shi Yang Xie (year 10).
