How Classicists Relax…

72_Latinists-onesies-006Some of the Year 8 Latin Scholars wanted to celebrate the end of their Latin Scholarship activity on a Monday night in style and, in contrast with how celebrations were held in Ancient Rome (but no less enjoyable), they decided that onesies are the togas of today and fizzy lemonade, crisps and chocolate cake would take the place of wine, flamingoes’ tongues and stuffed dormice. Entertainment was provided in the form of an episode of Friends (the boys in this group found something else to do that night, hard to understand why…).  It was a slightly surreal but great fun evening and the Scholars said goodbye to Latin in style. They haven’t left the Classics behind, however, as they have started on a programme of Ancient Greek which will take them through to the end of the Summer Term.
