To celebrate this year’s European day of Languages QMA’s pupils got to experience some Spanish food at lunch time on Thursday last. Many thanks for the dinner ladies for putting on a great spread.
Our S2 Spanish elective class have been busy learning about Spanish and Latin American festivals. As part of the course they created Piñatas for this year’s European Day of Languages. The Spanish elective class and our S3 classes had great fun trying to burst the piñatas last Thursday.
A select lucky 20 S3 pupils and 4 senior pupils attended the South Ayrshire European Day of Languages event hosted by Mark Pentleton of Radio Lingua. The pupils were chosen for their displays of “why languages are
important” back in June. Pupils had fun participating in various workshops and we tied up the event with a quiz to everyone’s great amusement. It was a really interesting afternoon where pupils found out why languages are important regardless of your chosen career. They even tried their hand at a new language using the radio lingua website.
