This is a sensational result for BSG and Global Campus, which connects 35,000 students around the world.
The topic had to be related to economics, business, culture, festivals, weather or food and the standard of competition was extremely tough, with top linguists from primary schools on three continents challenged to talk for a whole minute in a second language without making any mistakes!
BSG students shone and it is with great pleasure that we announce the overall winner was our very own Aashika Suresh from 5AS. Mr Stallwood commented - 'Aashika’s report was flawless, with an interesting subject presented superbly.'. The judges agreed and were blown away by her skills awarding a clear 1st Place. Huge congratulations to Aashika from all at BSG, she should certainly be proud of her achievement and for representing our school so well in this prestigious international competition. Well done!
The Oxford judges were impressed by the quality and accuracy of Eeshta's writing and we learned of her success in the final weeks of term. This is a well deserved reward as Eeshta is a talented student who has shown great commitment and enthusiasm in Spanish this year.
There will be numerous competitions and events on the Global Campus in the coming months. These will offer students of all ages the opportunity to highlight their skills and knowledge in a variety of subjects using a range of skills. Such competitions require students to research and plan, to work independently and then show creativity when producing their work.
Here at BSG, we place much focus on our Core Values and these Global Campus activities offer our students an ideal opportunity to demonstrate a Love of Learning, Commitment and Responsibility. Furthermore, like Eeshta has, these competitions showcase the excellence of our students on a global level.
Well done, Eeshta. We hope to see more award winners in the coming months.
