The 26th September is an important day in any language teacher’s diary as it is the European Day of Languages. This year, Accrington Academy have celebrated with various activities in form time, and international cuisine available in the dining hall.

However, the main focus for students is the inter-colllege challenge. Forms are competing to take the best selfie, but there are rules that must be adhered to! There must be at least 5 students in the picture, as well as one member of staff who speaks a foreign language. Furthermore, students need to include at least three language facts in their picture….somehow.

I’m looking forward to judging the entries on Friday 7th October. Watch this space to find out the winners of the first inter-college challenge.
