There have been two hotly-contested competitions for students of Languages this year. The first was held in May and it was a competition between all the language classes in the Middle and Senior Schools. In the French section, Madame Benzenati’s Year 12 class once again proved too strong. In the Japanese section, Miss Saigo’s Year 9 class moved to an early lead and was never overtaken.
In the second competition, the World Championships, St Hilda’s did very well. We had two girls gain an Elite certificate by accumulating over 10,000 points and this requires many hours spent diligently at the computer or iPad.
Overall, St Hilda’s School was awarded the following:
It takes approximately one hour to reach 100 points for the students who are familiar with all the vocabulary. The girls have access to many vocabulary lists and many of the more capable girls challenge themselves with a grade or two above their year level.
Overall results in the World Championships
There have been some outstanding personal results in these competitions and no doubt your daughter’s hard work will pay off in the upcoming tests.
