Today is European Day of Languages, a day to celebrate European languages and show how important languages are and what fun can be had learning them.

In order to celebrate the day at Great Torrington School, the languages department arranged a number of activities.

Tutor groups took part in quizzes during tutor time and found out interesting facts about countries around Europe.  Discussions were held on the cultural stereotypical images of a nation and its inhabitants. 

At break time today everyone was welcome to enjoy a continental snack which consisted of croissants, pains au chocolate and hot chocolate. 

The night before at our annual open evening, staff, pupils, parents and prospective children enjoyed continental cheese tasting and a language games on the interactive boards. 

Thanks to all pupils and staff who helped to make European Languages Day such a success.
