From the College, Olivia Overfield won the Year 9 section with Fayth Doherty in third place. Samantha Fey was third in the Year 10 section.

The Year 7-8 students had to speak in French about something or someone they liked, while the Year 9-10 topic was ‘Teenage World.’ They were adjudicated by the French National Adviser who assessed their presentation, delivery, language skills and audience appeal. A total of 35 students from seven schools were competing, with organiser, College Head of French Pascale McMillan saying the standard was ‘fantastique!’
