Congratulations to Ms Clarke’s Transition Year German class who won the Leargas European Day of Languages 2015 “Day in the Life..” competition having been chosen from close to 700 entries. Leargas said “the standard was exceptionally high, but the winning entry stood out because of the care and attention paid to all aspects of the diary. Students imagined days in the life of holocaust survivor Tomi Reichental, and presented them in a hand-made book. The winning individual entry (written by Thomas O’Neill) told of a harrowing day at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.” History teacher Ms McCarthy arranged the Tomi Reichental visit and is also delighted with the success of the students. Students and teachers will travel to Bruges shortly courtesy of Leargas.
