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.

Shield bearer: first placed Henry Turner and third placed Alex Krausz with the Year 8 shield. The pair are from Mirboo North Secondary College.
