The Curriculum Leader for Spanish at St Bon’s, Miss Mascherin, arranged for a Latin American Community Party to be held in the marquee on the Friary Lawn yesterday, July 12, for her Spanish students and their families, many of whom have Latin American roots.
A selection of Spanish dishes including homemade guacamole and gazpacho was provided whilst Cuban Son and Salsa music played in the background. One student, Fernando Ruiz-Landeta, provided live entertainment on his Spanish guitar.
Donations for the Grenfell Fire Disaster Fund were collected and Miss Mascherin went on to explain: “The party went really well and lots of families came out to support the event. The money is still being counted for a final total but I am confident I will be able to pass on a nice cheque to the victims next week from us all in the Spanish Department. Thank you all for your support.”
