On Friday May 27th 2016, our entire school sounded like a mini United Nations as the Department of Modern Languages presented Language Day 2016!

 The entire day was dedicated to the celebration of languages and the key role that language plays in every aspect of life.  Having selected a country, students from Form 1 to 4 were invited to decorate their classrooms accordingly and to take part in a cultural show during lunch.  Guest speakers were invited from various embassies and high commissions, the University of the West Indies and other cultural groups. to make presentations.  The afternoon sessions were spent doing practical activities in workshops.  Students seized the opportunity to learn sign language, a bit about Braille, dance, cook, sing, play music and games of all sorts, enjoy Mystery Skype sessions  and watch movies and music videos. 

With the help of friends, parents, well-wishers, teachers and students, and of course our brilliant guests, the event proved to be a resounding success and everyone is eagerly anticipating our next Language Day!

Cluny schools in Martinique and Trinidad make contact!

martiniquevisit-01In January 2016, a group of 15 students (10 girls and 5 boys) from the Pensionnat de Saint Joseph de Cluny in Martinique spent a week at the homes of students from our school.  The boys were hosted by their male counterparts at Queen’s Royal College. 

 

 

 

 

 

 The visiting students were accompanied by two teachers, Mr. Dominique Mallet (English) and Mr. Alain Dubourg (P.E.).  The experience was an enriching one on many levels, and on the last day of their visit, the Martinicans attended our school and even got a taste of our local culture.

Then, for one week in April during the Easter holidays, 9 girls and 6 boys made the return visit to Martinique!
