The Languages team at St Hilda’s School is very happy with the girls for coming along to morning tea and lunchtime practices in the 2 weeks prior to the competition. The girls’ application, dedication and interest in the study of their second or third language can only assist them in becoming global citizens which will be an important and necessary part of their future lives.

As an indication of the quality of work that St Hilda’s School students present, a copy of Georgia Welch Year 9 french and Maxine Moore Year 9 Japanese Speech, are attached for your perusal.
