"As my three children pass through Park Road, I watch them develop into well-mannered, well-educated and interested young boys, with an enthusiasm for life and all its opportunities."

Girls Celebrate All Things German

Friday, 08 February 2013

Thursday at Hesketh House was International Day 2013 with a host of activities to celebrate everything German.

All girls came off timetable to spend a day filled with cross-curricular activities, exploring the food, language and culture of Germany and researching interesting German facts.

Girls moved around the school on a ‘carousel’ of different German-themed tasks. They learned some German words to order a variety of German foods in a set up café, and after sampling the foods they voted on their favourites. They looked at the world’s first animated film (by a German artist) and had a go at making their own animations using stop motion software. Pupils also stepped into the shoes of the Brothers Grimm, telling stories and using their traditional tales as inspiration for huge whole-school paintings reminiscent of the Berlin Wall graffiti art. At lunch they enjoyed more traditional German foods.

It was a non-stop day of challenge for the girls and an enjoyable and memorable experience for them all.
