German recitals impress
TWELVE Mirboo North Secondary College students recently headed to Club Astoria in Morwell for the annual regional German poetry competition.
The task was to recite a poem that had to be learnt off by heart in German to two judges in a tiny room.
All students in years 7-9 were highly commended by judges who stated it was difficult to choose the winners.
The day concluded with a German lunch.
The college was represented by: Year 7s, Jaime Chila, Ashleigh Poland, Casey Porch and Alissa Adams; Year 8s, Henry Turner, Alex Krausz, Alistair Newton and Nikiesha Bayley; and Year 9s, Lucy Palmer, Leah Williams, Caitlyn Beale and Matthew Davison.
Place-getters were: Year 7, first Jaime Chila, second Alissa Adams and third Ashleigh Poland. Year 8, first Henry Turner and third Alex Krausz; Year 9, first Lucy Palmer and second Leah Williams.
For two years in a row, Mirboo North walked away with all three shields.
