Translation Bee TRIUMPH!

Yesterday afternoon Tehreem (y9) and Tehmeed  (y8) competed in the Translation Bee Regional final at Sheffield Hallam University.

This competition is similar to Spelling Bee but this time students are expected to translate entire sentences in three tenses in one minute. 

The talent was incredible and standards were so high and consequently there were tie breakers at every stage. Despite this, I am absolutely thrilled to announce that our girls placed 2nd (Tehmeed, y8) and 4th (Tehreem, y9) out of 4440 students!!!

They will both go onto represent our school at Cambridge University.
