Language Champions Of The World

The Glennie School has claimed the proud title of best school in the world for French (schools with 501-1000 students).

Over 200 students from The Glennie School in Years 1 to 12 competed in the Education Perfect Language Championships, with the School also placing 40th overall globally, 5th overall in French only and 2nd for French in Queensland.  

Year 10 student Emma Anderson achieved the highest honour of an Elite award, the second time she has achieved such an outstanding result.  Emma earned 10,000 points during the week-long event.

Junior Years students Lily McGinn, Aamna Shahid and Shashaa Logitharan achieved Emerald awards, being the second-highest accolade earning over 7,000 points each.

Glennie amassed a total of 76 Elite, Emerald, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Credit awards.  The Championships are run world-wide and this year 2,159 schools were involved from countries including Australia, New Zealand, England, Hong Kong, United States of America, Malaysia and Singapore. 

The event is an online extension and application of prior language learning.  Students focussed their efforts on French and competed with other students around the world.  Throughout the Championships students could choose to answer questions in multiple languages about many topics from greetings to ordering food at a restaurant to verb conjugations.
