Students on the College’s ESOL programme have won the top prize in the prestigious Euroscola competition - a trip to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France. Part funded by the European Parliament, the annual competition is open to Lewisham young people aged 16 to 18.

Using their English and foreign language skills, the six students had to develop a presentation on a European theme – such as BREXIT and the future of Europe – which was filmed and sent to the judges. The students, together with their Progress Coach Nina Mirzaei, prepared their presentation entitled “Global Warming in Europe”, which made a great impression with its content, style and delivery.

Feedback from the Civic Suite was glowing for the students: “Wow! The students really know about climate change! They were clear, concise, and informative. The innovative approach they took in drawing together and presenting methods for reducing climate change was particularly outstanding.”

On 29th March, the students will travel to Strasbourg where they will get to be MEPs (Members of European Parliament) for a day, along with 300 other young people from across Europe. The students will get a real taste of how the Parliament operates by getting the chance to work in multilingual groups and discuss some highly topical issues such as security and human rights, migration and integration, and the environment.

Annette Duncan, Head of ESOL Young People, comments: “The students have done incredibly well to put together a very professional, interesting and thought-provoking presentation. With BREXIT a hot topic, this will be a fascinating time for them to visit the European Parliament and exchange views with people from a diverse range of cultures and countries. I’m really proud of their success.”
