Over the past week, 150 students at St. John Fisher have been competing in the international Vocab Express League of Champions competition, which was run to promote the European Day of Languages on September 26th. Our students have been learning and testing themselves on vocabulary from a variety of languages with the aim of scoring as many points as possible and achieving a higher score than the other schools who were competing around the world. In last year’s competition, we came 13th so the aim this year was to reach at least the top 10 and we certainly achieved that – winning the French competition and coming second in the overall competition. There were also several student successes
Overall League of Champions Piccolo Competition: 2nd place
French League of Champions Piccolo Competition: 1st place! Lauren in 11H came in the top 40 of the student genius competition.
Polish Genius Cup: 4th place with Filip in 8J coming second in the individual student competition.
Urdu Genius Cup: 7th place with Umar S in 8R finishing in the top 40 of the individual student competition.
Spanish League of Champions Piccolo Competition: 10th place with Eboney and Beverlyn in 11H both finishing in the top 30 of the individual student competition.
We also had a student, Sidrah in 9F, who finished in the top 30 of the Arabic competition.
Félicitations to everybody who took part. The whole school is proud of your effort, especially the Languages department!
