Talbot Heath School offered a celebration of everything European thanks to the fifth Linguists’ Dinner that took place on the eve of half term. Once again it proved to be an international success.
The variety of girls’ (and staff) talent was displayed to the 111 guests, and encompassed the five languages taught at Talbot Heath: French, Latin, Spanish, Italian and German. Bravo to all involved in the evening – the pupils who performed and waited on tables; staff who performed, organised and attended the annual event; and to parents who supported. A special thanks goes to David Hancock and his catering team for providing a sumptuous five course banquet for the evening. The menu was a tasty mix of art, literature, music and dance and included performances from girls across the year groups.
Just when the audience thought they had avoided indigestion, the staff band – Le Talbot Heathens – performed Ça plane pour moi, (original by Plastic Bertrand, with revised lyrics by Mr Butcher) and 99 Luftballons (99 red balloons) by Nena. The evening ended with a vibrant and dramatic dance from members of the sixth form, the Can-can. Special thanks go to Madame Klemz and the MFL department for organising a superb evening.
