INVERCLYDE Academy youngsters explored other cultures as part of a day celebrating modern languages.

Third year pupils also served up coffee and cakes to their guests, who included language ambassadors from Strathclyde University and Mandarin speakers.

Principal teacher Sarah Bell invited along experts in British Sign Language, as she widened out the European day of languages.

She said: “It was a great day, and the third year pupils enjoyed taking care of our guests.”

The event, which doubled as a Macmillan Coffee Morning, raised £190 for cancer care.
