Local language school, Lingua Fanatics has selected one outstanding student in French and one in Spanish from amongst some 400 students aged 3 to 11 years in 24 schools and private venues across Harpenden, St Albans and Wheathampstead. Kate Speirs, owner of Lingua Fanatics said: “All of our teachers send in their nominations with their reasons and I select the one child who I think is the most deserving in each language. A very difficult decision given the local talent we have“.
The winner in Spanish is Florence (year 4 at Sauncey Wood Primary School, Harpenden). Her teacher Paola said: “She has shown great progress in Spanish and always wants to speak, read, act out role plays, sing and learn new phrases.”
Florence said: "I love Spanish as it allowed me to speak when I was on holiday, I was really pleased when people understood. Paola is a very fun teacher!"
Mr Lloyd said: I was thrilled to discover Flo had achieved this award and it was a pleasure to see her presented with her certificate and medal in our celebration assembly. At Sauncey Wood, we love to celebrate all of our learning in all subjects. We are so proud of you Flo and know you will continue to flourish.
