The Catering staff helped pupils at the Junior Girls’ School to celebrate Modern Foreign Languages Day by putting on a special spread to match the Spanish theme. Each year, the School chooses a different country to celebrate on MFL Day and absorbs the children in that culture, with the food served at lunchtime helping to give a flavour of the cuisine.
This year was no disappointment and the girls tucked in to traditional Spanish recipes ‘Pollo al Chilindron’ (chicken and vegetable stew) or ‘Cazuela con Verduras’ (vegetable casserole). This was followed by a delicious ‘Crumble de Manzana y Caramelo con Helado’ – or apple and caramel crumble with ice-cream – for dessert.
Catering staff also joined the girls in dressing up for the event by wearing Matador hats to match the girls’ swishy flamenco-style skirts and red clothing. Catering Coordinator Andrew Scialpi-Sullivan also provided some spontaneous Spanish guitar music, allowing the girls and Mrs Hornby to practice their dance moves during lunch!
The efforts of the Catering staff helped to further immerse the girls in Spanish culture and really added to their experience of MFL Day.
