Mother Language Day at KCP
On 20th February both Primary and Secondary students were involved in the celebrations of International Mother Language Day. Students had the opportunity to discover languages spoken around the world, as well as all of the languages spoken at King’s College Panama. Did you know that at KCP we currently have students from 32 nationalities who speak 14 different languages at home?
The day in the Secondary school was packed with activities, including: a taster session for Catalan; a taster session for Russian; a taster session for Italian; a science session about language and the brain; a humanities session about why some languages are dying out around the world. Students have also started their entries for our Writing Competition, whose winners will be announced during our World Book Day assembly on 6th March.
The day was a great success and the students enjoyed trying out new languages. I would like to thank the parents that were involved in producing resources for these lessons as well as the teachers who prepared lessons for this very special day. I hope our students have been inspired to improve their current English/Spanish/French language skills or maybe even start learning a new language!
