This week the Middle Senior School celebrated Language Week. A variety of activities were organised for students within their Languages Other Than English(LOTE) classes and in homerooms.
Students had to opportunity to enter colouring in competitions, Photo guessing competitions, design a poster outlining Facts about their own country and complete a language quiz on France, Spain, Malaysia and Australia. Year 8 students were also very fortunate to be able to go on a field trip to Bangsar to sample French, Chinese and Malaysian cuisine. “ Did you know” facts were shared on the daily notices as well as on television screens around the school.
This was a first for the LOTE Dept at AISM and we hope to make it an annual event with more exciting activities next year.
