Last weekend 12 French students from Years 4 to 8 and their parents, represented GCCC at the Modern Language Teachers’ Association of Queensland’s annual Speech Competition held at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
The GCCC students who attended this event were selected to represent the College and competed against more than 500 outstanding second language learners, from a variety of schools and colleges on the Sunshine Coast. Congratulations for the hard work put in by all students:
Rebecca Bradney-Wareing Yr 8
Emily Logar Yr 8
Hamish White Yr 7
Jessica Perro Yr 7
Nikita Perro Yr 7
Madeleine Roulston Yr 6
Aiden McKellar Yr 6
Briony Spencer Yr 5
Kiana Reeves Yr 5
Mason White Yr 4
Teanna Newell Yr 4
Cara Bales Yr 4
All participating students were involved in a challenging experience and received a Certificate of Participation and a goody bag!
It is with much excitement that we celebrate with Mason White for achieving 2nd place and Hamish White 3rd place for their respective year levels, as well as Teanna Newell and Aiden McKellar for achieving Highly Commended awards.
Mrs Hammill was involved as one of the judges for the Years 10, 11 and 12 categories and came away pleasantly surprised and extremely proud of the outstanding level of French language learners on the Sunshine Coast.
Mrs Gordon was one of the French Conveners registering students for the competition. It is therefore, with knowledge of the competition, that we can report with confidence that the places secured by our own College students, were a tremendous achievement on their part and our College community can be very proud of their accomplishments.
