Girls excel in MFL Competitions

On 8th January, a number of girls were recognised in Chapel for their success in recent Modern Foreign Languages' (MFL) competitions, including a National French Translation Competition, run by The University of Sheffield. Other competitions were a Language Sticker Competition and a German Competition, set up by the German Department and financed by the Goethe-Institut in London.  

Some of the winners are pictured above. 

Language Sticker Competition
Last term, to celebrate the European Day of Languages on 26th September, the MFL Department organised a Sticker Competition. All of the stickers were language-inspired, using the theme of 'Unity' and there were some amazing designs. The winners were:

For German: Evie (MIV)
For Chinese: Sophia (UIV)
For Spanish: Faith (UIV)
For French: MingMing (LIV)

Sixth Form National French Translation Competition, The University of Sheffield 
Earlier this academic year, the Sixth Form girls were invited to take part in a National Translation Competition organised by The University of Sheffield.  The translations were extremely challenging and required several hours of work and research. Two of our LVI (Year 12) girls studying French took part and managed to win this prestigious competition. Many congratulations to Megan and Lizzie.

German Competition
There were also a variety of challenges set up by the German Department and financed by the Goethe-Institut in London. The competition involved designing a sticker, as well as writing a song based on the book Zusammen by Daniela Kulot and writing an essay based on the same book.
Congratulations to: 

Joint 1st place : Iona and Mya (UVI - Year 13)
2nd place : Ophelia (UIV - Year 9)
Joint 3rd place : Amber, Gigi and Lydia (UV - Year 11)
