The Year 9 pupils at Monmouth School for Girls impressed in this year’s Oxford German Olympiad.
Milly McIlroy achieved joint first place in task one of the Years 7-9 category and Sophia Rose was placed as a runner-up.
This year’s theme was Tiere und Monster (Animals and Monsters) and the students had to produce a creative dialogue in German.
The work of Amelia Phillips, Izzy Crewe-Read and Ellen Minty was also highly commended.
Elise Heslinga, co-ordinator of the Oxford German Network, which organised the national event, said: “The girls should be very proud of their achievements, especially considering that this was one of the most widely-entered categories this year.”
In another part of the competition, a playlet devised, written and filmed by Amelia Phillips, Hope Farquhar, Holly Long and Sophia Rose was highly commended.
