French flags, berets and snails could be seen across St Michael’s on Tuesday 18th May as pupils and staff celebrated all things French.
The annual event, which sees pupils enjoy a range of French activities, competitions and food, was a huge success and joyful for all involved.
Throughout the school, a sea of bleu, blanc, rouge could be seen as everyone was invited to dress up for the day. In Pre-Prep, pupils enjoyed animated assemblies led my Madame Buttery and former St Michael’s teacher Mrs Beesley as well as fun tasks including an Eiffel Tower challenge for Year 2. Meanwhile, Prep pupils enjoyed form time activities such as watching French films and listening to French songs.
Year 6 pupil E Newton said: “French Day was so much fun. We all loved dressing up and really enjoyed watching a French film called Les Malheurs de Sophie in the afternoon.”
Head of Languages, Madame Poracchia added: “It was wonderful to see so many staff and pupils getting into the spirit of French Day. Thank you to everyone who made it special and especially the Catering Team for making a French banquet for us. We enjoyed some delicious beef bourguignon, crêpes, and 250 garlic snails in total.”
