Gavle Sr students qualifies to the finals in International Language Competition

On 6 March, two of our Year 9 students participated in the regional final for Spanish in the International Language Competition (previously known as Språkolympiaden) in Stockholm, after having qualified in the first round of competitions, which are held online. Six schools from the middle Sweden region had qualified for the regional final, and three of them were IES schools! Our students achieved an impressive 20 out of 21 points, and with that, won the regional final!

This means that they are moving on the the national finals in Malmö on 29 March! We are very proud of them, and are keeping our fingers crossed for them in the finals!
