Two Year 12 TGS students win a trip to Italy in state wide Italian Competition

Year 12 Townsville Grammar School students, Lillian Carson and Dylan Anger recently were announced as winners of the StudiataliA Prize, awarded to students to promote and reward excellence in the study of the Italian language in schools across Queensland.

 Lillian and Dylan, along with three other Queensland students, have received an incredible prize of a four week study tour to Italy, which includes flights, accommodation and meals. The tour provides an immersion experience to study and live in Italy. During the four weeks, the students will attend the Convitto Nazionale 'Paolo Diacono' boarding school in Cividale del Friuli, northern Italy. The students will depart in late November after the end of the school year.

 The dedicated Italian students participated in the rigorous application and interview process, in Italian and English, to win two coveted positions for this tremendous travel and learning opportunity.

 Principal, Mr Timothy Kelly, “As a School we firmly believe that the study of a second language is much more than an academic endeavour. It promotes intercultural understanding and a more global perspective on our increasingly smaller planet. We are very proud of our whole language programme and applaud Dylan and Lillian who have worked so hard to achieve their individual goals with their study of Italian.”

 The state wide competition is run by Education Queensland, and was established in 1994. It is open to any Year 12 student in Queensland studying Italian as one of their senior subjects.
