On Tuesday 27 September 2016, Year 13 and Year 14 language students visited Holy Family Primary School to teach French, Irish and Spanish to Primary 3 - Primary 7 pupils to mark European Day of Languages. The Sixth Form students were extremely keen to take part in this project, and for many it was actually an opportunity to return to their former primary school. The lesson topics ranged from ‘colours’ to ‘animals’ and lots of careful planning was involved. The primary pupils thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to learn a new language and demonstrated great enthusiasm and confidence. The “new teachers” were rewarded for their efforts with some well-deserved treats, provided by the primary school at the end of their lessons.
