Classics Success Once Again for Bolton Boys
Monday, 22 March 2010
Bolton School boys have once again enjoyed success at the Annual Manchester Classical Association Latin and Greek Reading Competition.
90 pupils from 12 different schools took part in this year's competition, which was held at Manchester Grammar. There were six different categories and boys performed recitations which were judged on both technical accuracy and empathy and sensitivity when reading. In the Beginners' category, Year 7 pupils Chandresh Khimji and Dominic Fung did extremely well to take second place. Year 10 boys had further success with Adam Woolley coming joint first in the Latin GCSE Category and second in the Greek GCSE category, and Peter Swift taking second place in the Latin GCSE Category.
Dr Reeson, Head of Classics in the Boys' Division of Bolton School, said: "All the boys who took part were excellent ambassadors for the school and are to be congratulated on their achievements. Their success is a reflection of Bolton School's commitment to Classics."
