Young Interpreters Scheme 

With the wonderful range of languages spoken by our School community, 43 Year 7 pupils were keen to train as Young Interpreters with me and my Year 8 Young Interpreters Committee on Tuesday. 

Pupils completed four training sessions which explored empathising with pupils who speak English as an additional language, learning how to be a buddy for new pupils and coming up with ideas for how we can further enhance the Wellington experience for our pupils. 

All pupils involved earned a certificate and badge at ‘graduation’; what was particularly lovely though was to hear the anecdotes of how so many pupils have helped others this year as well as the hotly-contested competition in the room as to who could speak the most languages! Can you believe we had pupil who can speak SEVEN?! 

Well done to all involved!
