Oxford University German Essay Writing Olympiad
Meesha Dad and Zakariya Bux of Year 9, as well as Zaynab Patel and Sebastian Roberts of Year 10 entered the highly challenging Oxford University German Essay Writing Olympiad in March 2017.
The theme of the competition was ‘Germany and Beyond’. Sebastian (pictured) achieved a Certificate of Commendation for his quirky take on the story of Hänsel and Gretel which he set in the present day. To quote the judges, ‘this was a wonderful achievement, especially considering this has been our most competitive Olympiad yet, with just under 550 entries.’
