Dear Parents

Junior Language Challenge

Congratulations on reaching the semi final!

I hope that your son / daughter has enjoyed learning Japanese over the holiday. We have received details for the semi-final event, which will take place on Monday 15th September 2014 at Hartburn Primary School, Adelaide Grove, Stockton-on-Tees, TS18 5BS.

You are welcome to attend the semi-final yourselves. Here is a link to the Hartburn Primary School website with directions on how to find it: http://tinyurl.com/odkwrlf.

On the day of the competition pupils will attend lessons as normal in the morning and then set off from school at 11am. The organisers have asked that we are there for 11:30am. The school will provide transport and pupils will be accompanied by a member of staff. Everyone will be given a packed lunch to take with them as we will not return until approximately 2:30pm. Pupils will then attend lessons as normal.

On the day the pupils will play games from the Talk Now Japanese website. They will be competing against each other and against the clock so speed and accuracy are crucial. The top three performing pupils will progress to the final to be held in London in October.

The event will be subject to the conditions of the annual consent form, and will be covered by the schools insurance policy. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leader. A qualified first aider will be at the venue. Personal items such as mobile phones, personal stereos, iPods or cameras are not allowed. The school cannot be held responsible for the care of these items and the school’s insurance will not cover them. We endeavour to take photographs during as many school events as possible, please visit our website, facebook and twitter pages to view a selection of photographs.

I would be grateful if you could please complete the consent form and in addition indicate whether you would like to attend the event on the form below. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Good luck!

Yours faithfully

Mrs H Garrett

Head of German
