Prize for King’s Ely duo at VI Hispanic Theatre Festival


Wednesday 17 October 2018



Two King’s Ely Senior students have won an award in recognition of their Spanish and theatrical skills.

Annie Moore and George Collier, both Year 10 students at King’s Ely Senior, participated in the VI Hispanic Theatre Festival held at North London Collegiate School on 9 October.

The festival, organised to celebrate Spanish language and culture in the curriculum, consisted of 14 short original Spanish plays which were performed on the night by students in Years 11-13 – and all in Spanish of course!

Annie and George were the youngest students to participate in the festival and they made King’s Ely proud with a brilliant performance which saw them win the prize for the ‘Best Unique Theatrical Experience’.

Head of MFL and Spanish at King’s Ely Senior, Esmeralda Salgado, said: “This is an outstanding achievement for Annie and George, who were competing against some very well-known schools, especially given their young age and the amount of Spanish they had to learn while bringing their performing skills to the test. This experience is all part of King’s Ely’s MFL Department’s aim to take languages outside the classroom!”
