#ThinkLanguages 2022 to be biggest yet

School planning for #Thinklanguages gets underway

Around 175 schools across Ireland have started their planning for #Thinklanguages 2022, the national TY event now in its fifth year. The celebration of languages and cultures is set to be the biggest yet, with over 14,000 students registered to take part in the nationwide event on Thursday 17th November.

Planning Packs & Event Resources

Schools will now begin to form their Champion Teams and make plans for their day.

To support schools with their preparations, registered schools will be sent preliminary planning packs this week – so keep an eye out for yours. The Champion Team Handbook will help guide students and teachers through what can be done before, during and after the event. Posters to promote day in the school and beyond are also included in the pack. The pack, and additional planning resources, can also be downloaded here 

A mix of supports including a pre-recorded opening ceremony with inspirational speakers, online language workshops, and a selection of live workshops will also be made available for the events nationwide. For more info on what happened in previous years, click here

Live workshops will be allocated at the end of October and full event packs will be delivered to registered schools at the start of November.
