16th October 2019 — Pupils of Hazlegrove School held their own International Day of Languages to celebrate the wider world as well as raise money for the well-known Wharf Kids Charity. Wharf Kids supports children affected by Ebola living in one of Sierra Leone's poorest neighbourhoods. The school was a feast of colour as children donated money to come in wearing something to celebrate a country of their choice. Over £360 was raised on the day.

Children aged from 2 ½ to 13 sang songs in Spanish and Mandarin and enjoyed learning snippets of Greek and German, they took part in French conversation, explored a Translation Treasure Hunt as well as de-coding ancient script and learning music from around the World.

French teacher, Claire Richards, said, ‘The day was a fantastic contrast to the Somerset countryside that reminded us all of the small part we play in our wider world.’
