Language students commended

Wed, Feb 9th, 2022
Worth School

Sixteen of our students recently received special commendations for their work in Modern Foreign Languages.

The students, from Years 9 to 13, were congratulated in assembly after being commended for their efforts, tenacity, engagement and skill. There were eight commendations in German, four in French and four in Spanish.

Languages are a big part of academic life at Worth. The Modern Foreign Languages departments delivers the teaching of French, German, Spanish, Mandarin and Italian. Teachers aim to engender in our students an enthusiasm for the language and culture of the country concerned.

Congratulations to the 16 students who received special commendations.
