French Students Success

Language students at Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School have performed outstandingly during the recent Language Perfect World Championships with 57 students awarded a certificate. The School was ranked third in Western Australia in the 101-250 student category and 170th overall out of 1077 schools globally, ranking in the top 15% of language students across the world.

Language Perfect is a global competition which runs for ten days during May. The competition allows language students to clock up as many hours as they can answering language questions on reading, writing, listening and speaking in a range of languages. Bunbury Grammar students from Years 7 to 12 from French and Japanese classes answered 299,477 questions and spent 1225 hours, over the ten day timeframe, using both their Languages class time as well as time outside of School hours.

Year 9 student Jessica Clarke was awarded an ‘Elite’ Certificate, the highest Certificate ranking a student can achieve for scoring over 10,000 points in the competition. Jessica was also ranked in 8th place in Western Australia. Overall Bunbury Grammar students achieve 57 Certificates –one Elite Certificate, six Gold Certificates, six Silver Certificates, 22 Bronze Certificates and 22 Credit Certificates.
