A number of pupils from Years 8, 9 and 10 have completed the Young Interpreter Project at Corpus Christi. The pupils all have English as an Additional Language (EAL) and are now able to use their first language to help pupils and staff in the school community. This may be with newly arrived pupils from a given country or when new EAL pupils and parents visit the school. The current group of Young Interpreters speak Czech, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian and Tigrynian.
The pupils all received a certificate to recognise their success and will now be able to include this in their CV.
The Project will be re-launched in January 2017.
If you can speak two languages and wish be part of the project, please contact the EAL Department by 30 November 2016.
