Priscilla Pollard, HOD Languages at St Mary's College
It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with Priscilla and her languages team at St Mary's yesterday. The school has magnificent views over the Auckland harbour as well as having friendly staff and students - it would seem I'm still as tall as ever as one Year 7 girl looked me up and down and exclaimed 'wow, you're so tall!'. :-)
Here is Julie holding a book that her and Priscilla recommend for fantastic games in the classroom. The students are engaged, learning quickly and retaining information faster than they would through other methods. Although the title includes 'primary' Julie and Priscilla recommend it for any level. The ISBN is 978-184590-994-9
Frances who also teaches French at St Mary's has taken the time to create this stunning wall for les jeux olympiques, something she is very passionate about.
Priscilla has organised an inter school quiz to take place on August 31st at St Mary's in Auckland from 4.30-6.30pm. Check out this link for more details and the entry form...great prizes to be won along with school pride!
