Kilgraston celebrates European Day of Languages 2022
The European Day of Languages (EDL) is celebrated across Europe on the 26th of September every year. It aims to promote the rich linguistic diversity of Europe and raise awareness of the importance of lifelong language learning for everyone. It was set up by the Council of Europe and was first celebrated in 2001. It provides an excellent opportunity to celebrate languages and explore other cultures.
Language learning brings benefits to young and old – you are never too old to learn a language and to enjoy the opportunities it opens up. Even if you only know a few words of the language of the country that you visit (for example on holiday), this enables you to make new friends and contacts.
At Kilgraston, on Monday 26th September, our Advanced Higher French class will showcase during our school assembly, the importance of language learning.
This year, a t-shirt competition is organised by the EDL. Eilidh, Kiki and Kinvara will launch a KG TEAM EDL t-shirt 2023 competition, giving our Kilgraston pupils the opportunity to take part in this European competition and to show their artistic skills by submitting their design onto our school Teams. There will be 3 categories: Juniors, L4th to L5th and U5th to U6th. Each drawing will be rewarded with House points and the best t-shirt for each category will be forwarded to EDL.
Here is the winning t-shirt design 2022.
We are looking forward to receiving many designs; the overall winner will also receive 10 t-shirts to share with their friends. Allez, à vos crayons.Back to News
