During the first week of term, French students and staff from the School of English, Languages & Classics celebrated The ‘Galette des Rois’.

Students enjoyed some delicious home-baked Galette des Rois, made by our French teacher Florence Robles, so they could experience a typical French tradition. The Galette des Rois (Cake of the Kings) is eaten in France to celebrate the Epiphany on the 6th of January. Inside the cake a little ‘fêve’ – a small China figurine – is hidden and whoever finds it, is crowned King or Queen for the day. Our students explored the origins of the tradition, listened to some interviews of French people on the street before finally crowning their Monarch whilst savouring the sweet delicacy. Katie Holliday was the School’s Queen!

Studying a language at Runshaw is both challenging and satisfying and requires a high level of student commitment; however, the rewards are immense and will equip you with a range of transferable skills including communication, critical thinking, research skills and creativity.
