German student recognised in national competitionApril 23rd, 2020
A Sixth Form student who is learning German at Monmouth School for Girls, has been recognised in a national essay-writing competition.
Edward, a Year 12 student at Monmouth School for Boys, has secured a place on the German Scholarships Programme run by the UK-German Connection.
Only eight students nationally each year are offered places on the programme which is an excellent opportunity for them to improve their language skills and learn more about the German culture.
The successful scholars are rewarded with a full-time programme of activities, including a week in Bonn, school visits and project work, a two-week home stay with German host families and visits to museums, and famous cities such as Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg and Munich.
Mrs Helen Smail, Head of Modern Foreign Languages at Monmouth School for Girls, said: “In the light of the current coronavirus pandemic, the visit will not be able to take place as planned in the summer holidays.
“However, an alternative programme is envisaged for Edward and the other winners at some point in the autumn.”
