Nine girls and twelve boys from Bolton School Girls' Division
and Boys' Division took part in this year's Manchester Classical
Association Latin and Greek Reading Competition, held at William
Hulme's Grammar School in Manchester. The Years 7 to 13
pupils were entered in various categories, which tested their Latin
and Greek reading skills.
The Girls' Division's Hawwa Bham was commended in the Lower
Sixth Latin Prose category. Bolton's two-man Year 7 team of
Thomas Mair and Ross Pursey won the Latin Beginners' category for
their lively performance of the story of a lion with a thorn in its
paw. Adam Woolley, Year 12, won the Sixth Form Latin Verse
category with a wry and sophisticated performance of a piece of
Ovid's love poetry.
Mrs Julie Hone, Head of Classics in the Girls' Division, said:
"The quality of entries this year was particularly high and I would
like to congratulate all our pupils in performing so well and their
teachers for all the guidance they provided in the build up
to the day."
All pupils at Bolton School start their Latin Studies when they
join in Year 7.
