A group of 21 Year 8 students took part in this year’s annual final of Eurofest 2016 at Selby College. The effort and energy of the whole group was evident and our students demonstrated resilience and confidence throughout the day.
Students and visitors from York University and the University of Hull enjoyed an inspiring day which centred around a student-led foreign language trade fair, coordinated by Selby College in order to promote links between Modern Foreign Languages and industry.
Kim Strachan, Sophie Ruston, Millie Swales and Gabrielle Townsend were voted Best Overall Trade Stand with their beautifully presented Spanish accessories stall.
William Crow, Abbie Brown, Lucy Thorn and Chloe Smithwhite were awarded the Best Use of Foreign Language trophy for their efforts on their Spanish game stand.
Star performers for Brayton were Lauren Jones and Ellis Douglas, whose energetic preparation and linguistic confidence shone through.
Every single student involved was a credit to the Brayton High School and were worthy winners through their eye-catching displays and confident use of the French and Spanish languages. Their behaviour and attitude towards the whole event was outstanding and teachers, Mrs Teasdale and Mrs Regan, agreed that they were proud to spend such a successful day with them
After the trade fair, students had taster sessions of Russian, Hungarian and Croatian amongst other languages, and hopefully got a few ideas of how valuable language awareness can be.
Our congratulations to the students of Holy Family Catholic High School, Carlton who won this year’s award for the Best Overall School.
A fantastic day was enjoyed by all and one which will long be remembered by those who took part.
