Language Festival at Europa

On Wednesday 14th June Europa School held our inaugural Stream Languages Day. It wais a festival showcasing the school’s bilingual curriculum in French, German or Spanish featuring cultural performances, food and activities. We were honoured to welcome Romain Devaux, Language Attaché at the Institut Français, as well as Jacqueline Woche, a German children’s author to the event. 

The Stream Languages Day was the brainchild of M. Marechau, the Head of the Primary School and marks the end of his decade leading the primary school since it opened in 2012, as he is retiring.  It also forms part of a year of events to celebrate the school’s 10th anniversary. 


The festival was an opportunity for students to learn about other cultures and languages and features performances of songs, poems and sketches by students and staff, a film festival, author visits, multilingual story time with older pupils reading books to the Early Years and Infant classes. The school menu on the day reflected the cuisine of the countries that speak French, German and Spanish and there was a pop up international cafe with cakes from around the world. To top off the day the year 6 students created a multilingual newsletter reporting on all the day’s activities.
