Educating concerned, informed, adaptable
members of the world community

Thornhill Celebrates European Day of Languages, 26 September, with a week-long range of language and cultural activities.

Miss Montgomery's French classes prepare for European Day of Languages on 26 September by exchanging postcards with schools in Europe via an e-twinning programme

A 'French Breakfast' was enjoyed by staff and pupils

Pupils took part in a 'Guess the Country' competition:

Members of staff wore badges with greetings in different languages, and pupils were asked to

'Guess the Language'.

Among those taking part were our Language Assistants, Inma (Spanish), Emmanuel (French) and Clare (Irish)

Mrs Hegarty's Year 8 Irish class practice their classroom language, which has now been shared with 20 other schools across Europe as part of the Britsh Council e-twinning project.

Pupils were also invited to recognise the animal sounds in different European Languages:
