Modern Languages Success
Stirling High School 2nd year pupil Ailie Robertson recently won SCILT at Strathclyde University’s ‘Language Learning postcard competition’. Pupils across Scotland were invited to design a promotional postcard that SCILT will use nationally at events to promote the importance of language learning. Ailie’s winning postcard contained key messages on the value of language skills and was deemed to have an eye-catching design. She focussed on highlighting the importance of learning a language in today’s globalised society and referred to the career advantages of speaking another language. This year the Modern Languages department at Stirling High School submitted applications for this annual event for the first time and were thrilled to hear Ailie had won. Ailie was invited to the Scottish Parliament on 11 May 2018 to receive her prizes as well as a printed and published copy of her promotional postcard. (photo attached)
