Twelve Year 8 Priory pupils visited Broad Oak Primary School last week to help with their annual European Day of Languages celebration. 

Our students worked with the primary students and took part in a number of different fun and engaging sessions, which included a French café, a traditionally French boules session and singing some typical French songs. 

Mrs Bailey, Head of Modern Foreign  Languages at Priory, said: The event was extremely successful with all students thoroughly enjoying the experience of the day. We would like to thank Broad Oak for inviting us to celebrate the day with them.

The European Day of Languages, jointly organised by the Council of Europe and the European Union, has been celebrated every year since 2001 on 26 September.  The initiative involves millions of people across 45 participating countries who celebrate linguistic diversity in Europe and promote lifelong language learning in and out of school, for purposes of mobility or for pleasure and exchanges.
