Eurofest 2019

‘À la bonne patisserie’ boys steal the show at Eurofest

The MFL department were invited to Selby College to take part in “Eurofest”, a simulated international trade fair where students had the opportunity to showcase products they had designed, answering questions and having conversations in French. Mrs Fitzsimons, Mrs Henderson and 19 Year 8 pupils attended the event where pupils worked in groups of four to design a product (or make a tourist information stand for one group). Our students worked incredibly hard at lunchtimes and in their own time to ensure they were happy with their final product.

Each group was given a stand on the day to display information about their product and the results were very impressive! Eurofest gave our students a fantastic opportunity to develop their confidence in French in a simulated business context. They were also given the opportunity to attend language workshops, run by college staff and students, and have a tour of the Selby College campus, enabling them to taste new languages and motivate their language studies into GCSE and beyond their time at Barlby High.

We did not manage to defend our winning title from last year, but we are incredibly proud of all students who took part – they really blew us away with their ideas and performance on the day.  The boys from ‘À la bonne patisserie’ dominated, winning ‘best overall stand’ and ‘best use of a modern foreign language’. The ‘WOW factor’ prize was won by the girls from ‘Bombe de Bain’ for their innovative idea of making their own bath bombs. We are grateful to Selby College staff for all the time and effort that went into organising the event and are extremely excited to make Eurofest one of the MFL department’s annual events. Well done to everyone who took part.

"We need to be the houses for God, welcoming Him into our lives" This morning Archbishop @JohnSentamu shared during the morning worship at @taize. He finished by washing Brother Alois' feet and sharing Eucarist with the wider community. Truly special moments here at #taize pic.twitter.com/vFSB…
