The event was for Year 8 pupils and featured three workshops from final year students and native speakers from Spanish speaking countries around the world. The countries covered were Paraguay, Peru and Ecuador.
The aim of the event was to show Spanish as a world language and inspire pupils to continue studying Spanish at school and beyond.
We were very fortunate to have Natalio Ormeño Villajos, the Education Advisor from the Spanish Embassy Education Office who travelled from Manchester to talk to the teachers while the students worked in their groups. Natalio was also responsible for judging the best poster created by the pupils and the best speakers of Spanish.
The event was a great success: sixty pupils and eleven teachers from local schools turned up on the day.
Many thanks to Kat Stevenson for leading the event; to Natalio Y Ormeño Villajos for his time, generosity and professionalism; to the student ambassadors for running the workshops and of course to all the pupils and teachers who made the effort to come and make this event worthwhile.
