European Day of Languages 2013 Competition Results

North East

European Day of Languages Competition 2013 in the North East – And the winners are … 

For many years, the North East representations of the Association for Language Learning, Routes into Languages and Network for Languages together with their partners Europe Direct North East England and Crossroads Languages have hosted this competition.

As the Lindisfarne Gospels were back in the North East this summer, the participants were asked to locate and/or create a text in their chosen language and present it as an illuminated page.  The immensely large response rate and the very high quality of submission, led the judges to the decision to visit the winners in school over November, December and early January to congratulate them personally and raise the importance of language learning across the regions.

The winners of this year’s European Day of Languages competition in the North East are:

Category KS2:

Winner: Jazell Qasim (Central Newcastle High School; Junior School)

Category KS3:

Winner: Ellie Stannard (St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School & Bryon Sixth Form College)

Runner-ups: Eve Murray (Egglescliffe School), Jenny McDowell (Sacred Heart High School), Serena Philpott (Central Newcastle High School)

Category KS4:

Winner: Fahima Khatun (Gosforth Academy)

Category KS5:

Winner: Sudip Budha Magar (Benfield School)

The judges and the supporting organisations would like to thank the teachers for their commitment to this competition. A particular thank-you goes to all the pupils in the North East that have sent in a contribution! The judges are looking forward to equally exciting submissions in 2014.
