Mi Instituto

The Year 9s are learning about the school in Spanish lessons. They have prepared presentations to explain about Webber and some of them are now on the MFL blog. Daniel Katechia and Rachel Tsiu came to visit the Year 7s to give them their presentation since the Year 7s are learning about school too. Some Year 7s were surprised to see how much Spanish they can learn in such a short time. Not to forget that Rachel and Sabeeh only started learning Spanish last year. They deserve to be congratulated.
