European Day of Languages 2011

In our school we have a kind of tradition at the beginning of every school year - 26th September, i.e the European Day of Languages. We try to celebrate it in many different ways, but this time it was special, as The Council of Europe marked its 10th anniversary.

In the morning, as soon as the sun was up, 10 volunteers from grade 12 A (whose head teacher I am) greeted all their teachers and colleagues in different languages. They also handed them some flyers telling them about the significance of this day. I was there, with and among them, and I was very surprised to see all the people entering our school (on a Monday morning!) with a large smile on their face.

Then, we inaugurated an informative panel about this day, containing different nice expressions and their translation. It was a nice way to start a new week at school. You can convince yourself having a look at these pictures.
