Inspiring a generation of linguists

7th October 19

Dunottar School this week hosted Languages Week, a diverse celebration of the cultural influences that make learning a new language so exciting.

Activities included a taster session in Russian Club, complete with caviar and blinis, a European flag icing workshop, impressionism with Cézanne, lunchtime language workshops and a brilliant performance of Viva España from The Flying theatre.

The school lunch menu was also re-invented for the week, with pupils treated to some traditional delicacies from Italy and Spain, including paella, Italian olive breads and salad.

We like to be as imaginative as possible during languages week and this week has been no exception.  In unique Dunottar-style our pupils have been invited to take part in Hindi workshops, creative arts projects and attend foreign film premiers – each activity a true reflection of our ethos to deliver education with character”.
