On Tuesday morning (8 December) the languages department hosted artist Elizabeth Bird, who came to present her art collection, which is currently being exhibited at Sidcot Arts Centre. Mrs Bird who has lived in Brittany for many years and painted many scenes of the local area gave an engaging presentation to Lower Fifth and Sixth Form French students about the region of Brittany and her artwork. Students' French language skills were put to the test, as the presentation was delivered entirely in French. Following a tour, students impressed us with their questions. This represented a fantastic real life opportunity to use their French.
