On Friday 12th October 2018 last year’s 4V CAE students and 6V IB English Language and Literature students were invited to come (back) to school in the late afternoon in order to receive their diplomas. At the CAE level 15 (41%) of our students managed to reach the B-grade (CERF level C1 higher end) and 16 (43%) of them achieved the lower end of that range with a C-grade. Six students (16%) did not achieve the level appropriate for the exam but were awarded a CERF B2 certificate (the one below the CAE proper levels).
Of the 11 IB-students who sat their International Baccalaureate English Language & Literature exam only one did unfortunately not pass the grade.
Ms Lucy van Rooij, Mr Jeffrey Groeneveld and Yours Truly took it upon themselves to hand out the official documents, with receiving students being applauded by (former) classmates, families and friends.
In addition to all those students we also had a small number of our TTO-teachers take part in the CAE exam. Of those (5) two managed to get a Grade A (one even so high that she also qualified for the CPE exam), two a grade B and one a Grade C. This is their first step towards a fully-recognised English proficiency level as required for our TTO-teachers.
Then it was time for the group pictures to be taken and apart from the odd camera battery going flat right there and then nothing untoward happened and the happy few were granted their moment of fame as shown below.
Afterwards there was still time to have a drink and a snack while exchanging the latest bits of news and gossip. All in all a nice way to start the weekend.
Well-done all, congratulations and for those 5-ath students who continue their bilingual training within our school with the IB course –
the best of luck there too.
