Update from Languages: IB Italian Results and more
Year 12 Italian IB Italian ab initio Success
We are very proud of our Year 12 IB Italian boys who just received their results for the final exams they sat in May. After just 15 months of learning the language, they achieved excellent results, with four boys receiving the highest grade of a 7 and 77 per cent of the boys receiving the top 3 grades.
Well done gentlemen!
This term we welcome Mario Aler and Juan Roman who are joining us on exchange from Seville, Spain.
Language Perfect World Championships
In May we participated in the week-long Language Perfect World Championships. Newington boys answered just under 267, 000 questions that week and were ranked 42nd in NSW out of 242 schools and 253rd in the world out of 1,302 schools.
Forty six boys gained certificates and we would particularly like to congratulate William Sun (7/LE) for answering a staggering 19, 193 questions, placing him in the top 0.2% of the 350 000 competitors from around the world and achieving an Elite Award certificate.
Congratulations to all of our participants.
