Classical Reading Competition

March 17, 2017

On Wednesday 15 March, a group of Paulinas attended the Classical Association Reading Competition at Queen’s College. It was a very successful day: the UIV team of Inaara, Jan-Chidi and Jiawen came first out of 15 teams performing a comic Latin scene, winning gold; joint silver was achieved by both Emilie and Tallulah in the VI, reading, respectively, a Greek poem about a grasshopper and a speech by Virgil in which Dido implores Aeneas not to desert her; and Nicole in the VII won joint gold for her performance of a passage from Tacitus encouraging soldiers to mutiny. The students enjoyed listening to the many different interpretations and hearing these languages aloud, as they are meant to be experienced.
