International fever took over Denbigh during the month of October as students and teachers alike got stuck into the different Languages House competitions on offer. It began with the Crack the Code Challenge, where students immersed themselves in the Nepalese language with the goal of decoding different phrases and puzzles to earn as many House points as possible. With this, students travelled around the library, compiling and putting together clues about language across the globe, to complete the All Around the World quiz. We ended the month with a celebration of the diversity we have at Denbigh in our first ever Languages Exchange Festival. From Korean to Arabic, from Italian to British Sign Language, from Tamil to Polish, our student body came together to exchange language, food, history, music, culture and so much more. With over 350 students and teachers joining in on the exchange, it is safe to affirm that diversity is what makes us stronger as a student body, and as one of our students proudly wrote, “Diversity is strength. Diversity is power.” A massive thank you to all of the student leaders who shared a piece of their diversity, heritage and culture with us and of course, the library team for their support in bringing the events to life.
