OO la la - what a cultured bunch! Primary schools from across the borough were invited to enjoy Polyglotz Day at Shevington High School.

The pupils participated in the multi-lingual event, with lively interactive workshops in Italian, French, Spanish and Chinese Mandarin.

Julia Williams, finance manager at Shevington High School, said: “The pupils enjoyed international cuisine during the day with delicious Danish pastries for breakfast and a Chinese and Italian-themed lunch.

“Throughout the day pupils gradually transformed the school hall into The Shevington Grand Cafe, which was set to welcome parents, staff and other visitors to afternoon tea and entertainment,

“The cafe was filled to bursting point with guests enjoying delicious fondants and tiramisu accompanied by a glass of French bubbly.

“The outstanding background music provided by Daniel Wilson, one of our talented young musicians, added to the cafe atmosphere.

“Finally, all eyes were on the year five pupils as they performed song and dance in Spanish and Italian and a fabulous puppet show revealing their superb French skills.

“And guests were amazed as pupils introduced themselves to guests in perfect Mandarin.”
