European day of languages

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements

On Tuesday 26th September, pupils in French, Gaelic and German classes celebrated European Day of Languages.  Pupils learnt lots of language facts and participated in language quizzes.  They were interested to learn about the noises made by animals of different nationalities (!), interesting idiomatic expressions and the longest words in various languages.  More importantly, it was another great opportunity for staff to promote the benefits of language learning.

Film G

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements

A number of S1 and S2 pupils recently showed an interest in producing a short Gaelic film for the Film G competition.  BBC Journalist Mairi Rodgers has been in school to assign roles and to start the pupils off with their script writing.  We will continue with this at lunchtimes so pupils involved should keep an eye on the Daily Notices.  Once the script has been completed, the next stage will be filming then editing.

Albert Roux dinner

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements

The Albert Roux charity dinner took place on Wednesday 13th Sept.  We were both serving the food and clearing everything from the tables after.  We were trained by Rockpool reserve gneral manager David.  We both really enjoyed ourselves and would like to do it again.
