The Language Perfect Northern Championships 2018 have come and gone, and with them, the drama and excitement have subsided. Now the points can be analysed and the awards handed out; the statistics from BISP’s involvement this year are staggering. A lot of vocabulary learning and fun has been had.
BISP students won 6 of the 145 Emerald awards awarded globally – a fantastic achievement!
During the week-long competition, 476 British International School, Phuket students in both the Primary and secondary schools answered amazing 532,387 questions (yes! that’s over HALF A MILLION!). Overall, 147 Awards were won by BISP compared to 50 last year. This represents a fantastic 194% increase in the total number of awards won by our students.
The breakdown is as follows…
73 Credit Awards were won (compared to 30 last year), 49 Bronze Awards (15 last year), 10 Silver Awards (0 last year), 10 Gold Awards (5 last year) and 6 Emerald Awards (0 last year).
