French Speaking Junior & Intermediate 11 Feb 2020

Some fantastic French spoken by the young contestants in our French Speaking Competition run with Epsom and Ewell Town Twinning Association and Blenheim School.

12 pupils from Epsom College, Blenheim High School and Rosebery competed at the Junior level to see who was best at speaking publicly in French.  This was followed by 7 pupils at the Intermediate level.

The standard was, yet again, impressively high and the audience were wowed!!

For the Juniors, First Place was awarded to Noemie Winmill (Rosebery) and Second Place was Anna Ganevitch (Rosebery).  Highly commended were Toby Hopson (Blenheim) and Liliana Olivieira (Blenheim).

For the Intermediates there was a distinct difference in standard between those with Francophone relations and those with no French speaker in the family.  The judges decided to award Mathilde Collet (Blenheim) the Francophone prize and Caroline Young (Rosebery) the non-French speaker prize.

Highly commended was Jo-Anne Winmill (from Rosebery).

Thanks to the Mayor and Mayoress of Epsom and Ewell for presenting the prizes, all the teachers and helpers who made the event possible and, of course, the judges  - Diana Deavin, Christine Rippon and Catherine Legouas.
