European Day of Languages

On Thursday the 26th September the school had a number of events running to celebrate the European Day of Languages.  The events included crepes and brioche rolls on sale at break, quizzes and a special canteen menu.   At the initiative of the Council of Europe, the European Day of Languages (EDL) has been celebrated every year, on 26 September since 2001 – a call to encourage all European citizens to learn languages and to recognise and appreciate Europe’s cultural diversity.

This special day represents an occasion to celebrate the many languages spoken within our countries and across our communities, and to demonstrate that all voices in Europe are treated with equal respect. These are the values of the Council of Europe, the continent’s oldest intergovernmental organisation which this year celebrates its 70th anniversary.
