French and German activities take centre stage on day two of European Languages Week

Prep and Senior pupils at Rydal Penrhos took part in a pair of activities as part of a week-long initiative.

As part of the school’s efforts for European Languages Week, Prep School pupils were given the opportunity to take part in a French-themed challenge with teacher Charline Vallée and gap year student Fabiola Guesnon, where they tried to knock over tin cans in the hope of winning a prize.

During the activity those that took part were also taught some different phrases in Madame Vallée’s native language.

There were tasty treats on offer at Rydal Penrhos’ senior site as the German department held a Waffle sale which drew a huge number of pupils during lunch break.

Lower Sixth Form boarding pupils Julie Mayer and Jonas Lucas-Nuelle were tasked with being chefs for the afternoon, with teacher Suzanne Boxleitner, department head Susan Livingstone and gap year German student Chiara Graf also on hand to lend their support.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Our Modern Foreign Languages department have put on an incredible programme to highlight European Languages Week, which is a hugely significant part of the Rydal Penrhos calendar given the wealth of different nationalities we have studying at the school.

“It is also something that our pupils have thoroughly embraced in recent years and it is wonderful to see this trend continuing.”
