On Thursday 28nd June Mrs Haigh, Mrs Watson and Mrs Baron accompanied 20 year 8 students to Selby College for their annual Eurofest competition and indeed its 10th anniversary. The day included a trade fair in which students displayed and advertised products they had designed and developed to market in Spanish. Product designs ranged from a clothing app to an app used to navigate tourists around Barcelona. Students also set up two Spanish tourist stands on which students gave information about Mataró and Pals respectively.
Selby College’s MFL department and the AS and A Level Spanish and French students oversaw proceedings. Liz Black of York University and her PGCE students did the judging. They also ran cultural activity sessions such as a college tour and Chinese lessons. The college’s student ambassadors were on hand to help through the day – many were ex-students from here at Selby High.
Whilst the judging and preparation for the awards ceremony was taking place, students were taken on a walking tour of the college campus and participated in the cultural sessions.
We are pleased to say that we cleaned up in a number of categories. Best overall stand went to Pals, España” and The WOW factor and best use of Spanish awards went to “Ropa para ti.”
Praise must go to all 20 students involved – they were handpicked from our year 8 cohort to represent us at Eurofest 2018 and they did not let us down! The MFL department is really proud of all of them.
Overall, students had a fantastic day and were a real credit to the school. Well done to everyone involved!
