THIRD Wessex English Olympiads 2019:  “A Gateway to the English Culture and Future”

Good Learners inspire themselves, Great Learners Inspire OTHERS!

 

The Third Wessex English Olympiad 2019 event organised by the English Department was a grand success where 32 schools participated in this event! The judges did a splendid job and their amazing help is praise worthy. 

 

The English Olympiad is applied in order to assess the students’ knowledge of the key language in order to have a deep understanding of critical thinking and logical reasoning thereby differentiating spoken and written English at an International level. The idea of this test is to introduce them to the International English Language testing system and be aware of their productive, reproductive and integrated skills.

 

 

The event went on extremely fabulous with amazing audience and 32 schools participated from Concepcion, Chillan and Los Angeles from the Biobio Region who contributed their utmost performance and challenged each other to be the Olympiad winner. It was a pleasure for the The Wessex Community to invite the schools in and around Biobio to share the experience of Third Wessex English Olympiads 2019 Interschool Competition. This is an initiative not only to explore the experience of hosting the English Olympiads for us but also accomplishing the gateway to the English Culture and Future for you, too!

“The most important thing in the Olympiads is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.” Pierre de Coubertin (Founder of Olympic Games). Keeping this spirit in mind, let’s go ahead with the forthcoming English Olympiad next year.
