Our new event in English takes place at the end of the first half of the year and is aimed at celebrating cultural differences as well as everything that was learnt and achieved in the English classes.
This year, the topic was Celebrations. Every class chose a festival from a country and investigated what is celebrated, when, where, who celebrates and how.
What follows is a selection of pics that show what each class decided to share at the event.
Have a look and celebrate with us!
