Italian Update

Date: July 17, 2018

Italian Extravaganza Day
Our Primary students had a taste of Italy on the last day of Term 2 with our very first Italian Extravaganza day. Students spent the day in their family group rotating through a series of different Italian themed activities from the artistic and active to the scientific. Students were able to express their creativity through experiencing painting like Michelangelo, experimenting with mosaic patterns and making masks. They also had an opportunity to think like Leonardo Da Vinci with challenges around constructing his bridge using only 12 paddle pop sticks and assembling his parachute. Together they constructed the tallest tower they could out of spaghetti and the tower with the greatest lean. As well as this, they learnt an Italian playground game and spent some time playing bocce, a well- loved Italian pastime. Towards the end of the day, we shared lunch together before creating a giant Italian flag on the oval. Unfortunately we ran out of time to compete in our much anticipated Palio on the day, but we will have an opportunity to do Palio during Italian club this term. The Drago contrada won the event in Siena on 2 July, so it will be interesting to see which contrada wins our Suncoast Palio!

Calligram competition
The ILC’s Calligram closes on 10 August and this year the theme is Casa e Cosa (house and things). Every year level has a different category and information for entry and categories is in each classroom. If interested, students will need to give any entries to me before Wednesday 8 August. A calligram is an image created entirely with words of different colours and sizes. In previous years, we have had some very creative entries.

MLTAQ Speech Contest at USC
This term is a busy one on the languages front as it also holds the Modern Language Teaching Association’s speech contest held annually at University of Sunshine Coast (USC). We have had many students in the past few years take up the challenge of representing the College at this competition with a number of successful entries during this time. The contest is open to students from Years 4-12. They will need to present a memorised speech about themselves. I will be available to help them prepare for the speech contest.
