How our language videos helped break a world record

Published on 16/01/18

Junior School and Pre-Prep pupils see their video creations chosen as Editors' Choice for the Council of Europe's world record success.

Back in September, the Junior School and Pre-Prep children were busy making lots of short video clips to enter a world record attempt for European Languages Day!

This challenge, hosted by the Council of Europe, was to create the largest collection of videos ever assembled on the subject of languages. With almost 2,750 videos being submitted overall, the new world record was successfully confirmed.  Excitingly, not one but TWO of the video clips entred by the Stephen Perse Junior School and Pre-Prep made the cut to be featured in the Editors' Choice video, a short selection of 17 clips to give a flavour of the project. Considering that almost 3,000 videos were submitted, we're very proud to see two of our own in the highlighted 17 clips.

The achievement really demonstrates our dedication to languages and international collaboration. A huge well done to all the children who took part by showing their enthusiasm for language learning and also to the staff for making it all possible.
