ALLEZ LES BLEUS!
Language Day 2017 at The Pres was yet another huge success where all language students got the chance to flex their linguistic muscles and join in a day of fun in French and German!
The day kicked off with a 10 round table quiz, which encouraged all 1st, 2nd, TY and 5th Year students to join forces and put their wits against each other in teams of six, covering a variety of topics from French/German culture and language to art, history and science.
Our champions this year were Ruby Mahon, Megan McCabe, Toma Cesiunaite, Claire McGill, Aislibg Dowd and Casey O’Grady. Félicitations les filles !
Next up, all students lined up to create a number snake in a variety of languages, with the promise of a sweet treat for sequencing numbers properly.
The last event of the morning was an obstacle course where France went head-to-head against Germany, displaying a range of skills and finishing with a tie-break fancy dress challenge. Heureusement, France won. Ms Casey and Ms Lohan were super impressed that the frenchies reigned supreme- sorry Ms Heffernan!!
The afternoon was filled with fun and laughter with French plays performed by a French theatre group for French students and a German film for German students.
All in all, a fabulous day was had by all!
