Celebrating creative languages

Celebrating creative languages

We had a wonderful day yesterday with Greater Manchester Higher, sharing and celebrating unique cultures. We’re proud to have such a multilingual and diverse community within our Academy!

Our Year 9’s got the chance to visit Manchester Metropolitan University and spend some time in a lecture hall asking questions all about university. They met the motivational speaker Alex Taiwo and poet Shamshad Khan during workshops which focussed on different languages and cultures. They shared the importance of being proud and confident of the languages that we speak and discovered the power of unique language to unlock our hidden potential. The workshops were great fun and we were proud to see our pupils engaging and sharing their own culture and traditions.

We even walked away with some MMU freebies as well!
