Determination and dedication
Seven Mandarin students from Years 9 to 11 represented Westholme at this year’s Northern heat of the Annual Mandarin Speaking Competition sponsored by the British Council and HSBC. This is the first time we competed in both Individual and Group categories. Despite all the obstacles and challenges, especially for those with mock exams on the horizon, all students showed determination, dedication and did a great job on the day.
We wish them the best of luck as we wait for the results to be announced in a week’s time when we will hear whether we have progressed to the final to be held in London in February 2018.
