CICERO competition in Malvern

A slideshow from Malvern (notes on the pics follow)

  1. Introduction to competition and videoconferencing with other countries
  2. Boris Johnson inspires and enthuses competitors, telling them how important it is for all young people in Europe to gain a sense of their common Classical heritage by eg. learning to translate Virgil.
  3. The competition : in strict test conditions invigilated by a Principal Examiner for Classical Civilisation A level!
  4. Some visiting students show their enthusiasm for Classics by the logo on the back of their T shirts!
  5. This one is actually from the very beginning – being told about things like fire exits!
  6. Relaxation and refreshments in between tests (in a different room).
  7. Relaxation and refreshments in between tests (in a different room).
  8. Display of prizes – prizewinners won't be known until all scripts have been marked. (NB Although this is called a competition, in reality it is a fiendishly difficult examination : a translation from Latin and questions on mythology : students in the different countries all participating, with both national and international prizes).
