In May, Llandrindod High School pupils Daniel Binks, Emma Davies and Emyr Davies, Yr 9, entered the Mother Tongue Other Tongue Modern Foreign Languages poetry competition with Routes into Languages Cymru. The pupils each produced an original piece of poetry in French, the language they are studying at school, together with a short explanation of why they had chosen their theme and why they had decided to enter the competition.
Emyr Davies is the winner of the Other Tongue category Year 7-9. He was described as an outstanding young poet. Emyr’s poem will be published in a poetry booklet and will be launched on the European Day of Languages on September 26th which will also be a prize giving event for the winners. Daniel Binks’ and Emma Davies’ poems will also be included in the book; their work was described as fantastic. All three pupils have since opted to study French at GCSE.
“This is the first time pupils from our school have entered a Modern Foreign Languages competition such as this and I am extremely proud of their achievements.” Miss D. Hardwick, Head of French.
