European Day of Languages

Posted: 6th October 2017

Mount Kelly marked the European Day of Languages last week with a variety of activities. At the College, pupils enjoyed typical French and Spanish breakfasts, and those studying a Modern Language GCSE took part in an international online vocabulary competition. Pupils at the Prep greeted one another in a range of European languages and, thanks to the catering team, everyone enjoyed an internationally themed lunch.

Year 10 and 11 pupils took part in The Vocab Express League of Champions, an international vocabulary learning competition, in which pupils had to learn vocabulary to pass through different stages and win points. Mount Kelly maintained a constant presence on the leaderboards and finished 17th in the Overall Challenge Cup, against many other schools from around the world!

Mount Kelly came 7th in the French Challenge Cup, 16th in the French Genius Cup and 12th in the Spanish Challenge Cup. The following pupils did particularly well and were named on the leaderboard for their perfomance in the whole competition: 

  • Ella came 11th overall with 31, 640 points
  • Charlotte came 16th overall with 30,300 points
  • Georgina came 18th overall with 28, 755 points
  • Naomi came 36th overall with 22, 665 points
