This year Wellington College entered 5 of our top students for this prestigious competition with 574 pupils from across Ireland taking part. All 5 of our amazing students were placed in the top 100 and therefore qualified for the final to take place in Dublin on 20th March. Dale Walmsley is currently lying second in the rankings.
Only Wellington and one other school have qualified from Northern Ireland for the final round. This is a fantastic achievement to have done so well in the preliminary stage and certainly bodes well for the final.
Our students are:
- Dale Walmsley (currently lying in second place)
- Rachel Darragh
- Heather Millar
- Emily Graham
- Kyle Graham
The top four highest scoring candidates will qualify to represent Ireland in the International Linguistics Olympiad (ILO) to be held this year in Manchester at the end of July 2013.
We wish our 5 students well for this challenging competition!
