To mark this year’s European Day of Languages on Sunday 26 September, the NCW Modern Foreign Languages department launched a cultural diversity project to students, World Languages and Me. The lucky winner/s would be treated to a special French breakfast!

NCW is such a varied community, so rather than focusing on just European languages and cultures, embracing the world seemed to be much more fitting with our own school community.

Ms Molina, Head of Modern Foreign Languages, instructed students to work in forms, groups, pairs or individually to come up with their own innovative and creative way to showcase world languages. Ideas included writing a poem, a song, designing a poster, creating a quiz and thinking of an imaginative anagram for the title of the project. It didn’t take long for students to get cracking on their submissions!

There have been some brilliant entries consisting of all sorts of mediums, students have put a lot of effort into their work and it was certainly a very difficult task to judge and choose deserving winners! However, after much deliberation and many different languages, winners selected were:

Amelie and Evie – for their British Sign Language and hand on hand (Deaf/Blind) signed poem written by Dot Miles and performed by both Amelie and Evie, along with Miss Tasker. Miss Gilbert kindly directed the video and provided a voiceover.
The video can be viewed on YouTube!

Roman – for his very original diary entry in English and Japanese.

As a reward for their excellent and hard work, Ms Molina treated Amelie, Evie and Roman to a delicious French breakfast experience. On the menu were a selection of brioche, chocolate filled crepes, orange juice and flavoured milks. French music was also provided for the extra ambiance! Students were very pleased with their break-time treat.

Bien joué to all students and their entries!
