De Beers English Olympiad

On 3 March 2020, 32 Ferdies learners wrote the very challenging De Beer’s English Olympiad. This three-hour exam has been a part of our school’s calendar for more than a decade and both English Home Language speakers and First Additional Language speakers enter annually. Learners study an anthology based on a theme; they attend eight afternoon classes during which the short stories, poems and dramas (such as Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus) are discussed and analysed. The most enjoyable element of this activity is the lively discussions that take place: the topics range from life and laughter, to politics and passions. These sessions enhance language proficiency love for literature and confidence in expressing oneself. This year’s theme was Consequences. The examination tests language and creative writing skills as well understanding of literary texts and it is therefore a mentionable accomplishment to write it, and especially to attain merit, bronze, silver and gold in this examination. We are therefore illimitably proud of our learners’ results that follow below:
