Two senior Ely students have won an award in recognition of their ‘Spanish and theatrical skills’ at the Hispanic Theatre Festival.

Annie Moore and George Collier, both Year 10 students King’s Ely Senior, took part in the VI Hispanic Theatre Festival held at the North London Collegiate School on October 9.

The festival, organised to celebrate Spanish language and culture, consisted of 14 short original Spanish plays which were performed by students in Years 11 to 13.

A spokesman said: “Annie and George were the youngest students to participate in the festival and they made King’s Ely proud with a brilliant performance which saw them win the prize for the ‘Best Unique Theatrical Experience’.”

Esmeralda Salgado, head of modern foreign languages (MFL) and Spanish, said: “This is an outstanding achievement for Annie and George, who were competing against some very well-known schools, especially given their young age and the amount of Spanish they had to learn while bringing their performing skills to the test.

“This experience is all part of King’s Ely’s MFL Department’s aim to take languages outside the classroom!”
