Pupils from across the Newbattle Associated Schools Group (ASG) participated in a very successful event to celebrate the European Day of Languages (EDL) on Tuesday, 26th September 2017 at Newbattle High School. P7 pupils from Moorfoot, Lawfield, Gore Glen, Gorebridge, Stobhill, Mayfield and Newtongrange primaries all participated in the event to celebrate language learning in Midlothian as part of the 1+2 Languages Initiative where all pupils are learning French from P1-P7.
Pupils presented a Fashion Show with fantastic commentaries in French and made posters of their fashion designs which were displayed around the Main Hall at Newbattle High School. Pupils also took part in a French quiz and a variety of fun and engaging activities relating to clothes, fashion and colour.
The event was organised and hosted by the Modern Languages Department at Newbattle High School and P7 teachers from all the primaries who worked extremely hard to make this event a success. It was also supported by senior pupils from Newbattle High School.
Feedback from the pupils was that they wished they had more time! It was a great example of cross-sector collaboration between the primary and secondary sectors.
Congratulations to all who took part!
