European Languages Day

December 16, 2014

On the 19th November St Declan’s 4th years had a European Languages Day. The day began with an exhibition of the projects done by both French and German students.  All students had the opportunity to view the excellent work. Next a selection of French and German food was brought into the Gym and everyone sat and enjoyed their European Breakfast. The German Teachers then announced the overall winners of the German Projects. They were: Craig Dunphy, Claire White and Shannon O’Donoghue for their project “Weihnachten” and Tara Fitzgerald and Victoria Hammersley for their “Rock” project. The French Teachers then announced the winners of the French Projects. They were: Pippi Griffin and Emma Cooper for their “Les Miserables” project and Malgorzata Bakierzynski, Sophie Burns and Erica Barry for their fashion themed project.  After all the food had been eaten, the students then separated to watch a film. The French students watched “Goodbye Lenin” while the German students watched “The Chorus”.

It was a fantastic day for everyone. Special thanks to the German Teachers, Ms. O’Shea and Ms. Farrell and to the French Teachers Ms. Carroll and Ms. Denn.
