Our Lady's High School

Our Lady’s High School in Cumbernauld embraced and enjoyed European Day of Languages on Thursday 25th September 2014 with a wide range of activities for S1-S6.

Our S1 pupils were creative and used Passport to the European Union booklets to choose a European country and designed their own posters which included interesting facts on their chosen country, the flag, the language spoken and “hello” in that language. The winners received a prize!

Our S2 were put to the test with a quiz on Europe and had to use all their resources including Let’s Explore Europe booklets to find the answers. The top 3 in each class won a prize!

Our S3 enjoyed a French breakfast and Eurovision Song Contest where they had to listen carefully to the song and decide the language, the singer and their nationality. Not as easy as they thought!

S4 went on holiday! Pupils worked cooperatively in groups to present their last holiday using a variety of media. Presentations covered where they went, how they travelled etc.

S5/6 enjoyed a Film Festival. S5/6 Spanish watched El Orfanato and S5/6 French enjoyed Jean de Florette in true cinema style with freshly made popcorn.

Even our Confucius Hub embraced European Day of Languages and looked at the different countries and languages of Europe in Mandarin!

Finally, our canteen pulled out all the stops and celebrated the day also with a full European menu on offer! Pupils enjoyed Spaghetti Carbonara; Lachaniko Moussaka and Macaroni au gratin to name a few.

A great time was had by all!
