Congratulations to all the winners of the Year 9 Translation Bee Winners from our Stage 1 Class Competiton in MFL. These winners will go forward to compete in our school competition on Wednesday 20th April.
Winners from the school competition (4 per language) will then move on to compete at the national final in Cambridge on 27th April.
Every Wednesday morning this term, the Year 9 students are being given the opportunity to develop a greater awareness of the world around them through dedicated current affairs sessions. With a focus on promoting their Social, Moral, Cultural and Spiritual awareness, these sessions will provide the students with the opportunity discuss topics which will explore their place in todays world.
Why not take the time to ask them about these sessions and what they thought about them?
Head of Year 9
Many of our Year 9 students spent form-time today watching the News reports on the London Marathon. With inspirational performances from elite athletes; dedicated costumed charity runners and Tim Peake-in orbit around the earth, the London Marathon has grown into an event of national pride which celebrates the best of British Values.
I hope that some of out Year 9 students -like some of their form tutors before them -will be inspired to do the marathon themselves one day.
Head of Year 9
On April 20th, winners of the year 9 translation bee competed against each other in French, German and Spanish to qualify for the national final, which will take place on June 15th 2016.
All competitors were deserving of their places in the school final and scores were close. Those who did not qualify, in the end, slipped up on the tiniest details. All gave impressive performances.
A huge well done to those who obtained the highest scores and whom we will be inviting to the national final on 15th June.
Well done to 11 Year 9 students for an impressive performance in the Year 9 Translation Bee School Competition and for qualifying for the National Final on the 15 June 2016. Brilliant!
