European Day of Languages

The European Day of Languages is celebrated on the 26th September, but since this date coincides with the beginning of the scholastic year, in Malta, this celebration takes place during the last week of October. At our school we celebrated this day with a special assembly on Monday, 29th October. The Italian and French departments took part. A poem in French was read by some students who learn French. Then, we had two fifth formers, Daniel Schembri and Matthias De Donno, who gave us some music from different European countries by playing drums and the saxophone respectively. A group of students who learn Italian danced to the Italian song ‘Soldi’. This song was the winner in the 2019 Sanremo Festival. Students of Spanish celebrated this day by linking it to ‘El Dia de los Muertos ‘. They prepared crafts and cooked the renowned tortilla de patatas with their teachers. Boards featuring students’ work with languages were displayed in the school foyer by the Italian and German departments. Finally, the Italian department provided background music during the midday break. All students enjoyed listening to past and present Italian pop songs. Languages give us great opportunities, they widen our horizons and give us freedom. They deserve to be celebrated!
