On Tuesday, Year 7 and 9 students from St Paul’s Academy ventured into the heart of London to spend the afternoon at Société Générale, a prestigious international investment bank. The pupils, all of whom are studying French, were joined by several of the company’s kind volunteers who hailed from a range of countries. This provided the kids with a great opportunity to flex their language skills and find out about some different cultures.

After several warm up games which included the students having to arrange themselves in order of age without saying a word (highlighting the importance of language!), everyone was ready to commence their challenge. The group was divided into teams and each received a top secret package from NASA telling them they had to set up a new society on the Moon starting with only 6 people (all in an afternoon’s work!). This provoked some interesting debate about what kind of jobs are needed to best support a community.

Finally, each group delivered a creative presentation on why languages are important and how they can help further your career. The kids showed thoughtfulness and enthusiasm as well as some real theatrical panache!

Well done to all of them and a thank you to all the volunteers for helping to make it such an enjoyable afternoon!
