School Hosts and Excels in MFL Poetry Competition

Saturday, 25 June 2016

Pupils from Bolton School Girls’ Division met with success in the first ever North-West Association for Language Learning (ALL) Poetry Competition, which the School also hosted. Contestants from five local schools had to recite a poem in French, German or Spanish from memory. The adjudicators praised the very high standard and the Girls’ Division was delighted that Holly Fowler in Year 6 won the French section and Hafsa Syed and Lucy Styles won the Year 9 Spanish and German sections. Mariyah Karim for Spanish, Cate Lord for German and Shivani Chohan and Sharon Daniel for French also received certificates for their achievement.
