New to English Graduation
On Thursday October 4th Leeds City Academy welcomed another group of new arrivals - in this case New To English EAL students from years 7 through to 10.
Eight students started and successfully completed the New To English Induction week joining us from countries including Saudi Arabia, Romania and Germany.
This group was, coincidentally, all boys and all football crazy!
On Friday 12th October they gathered as a 'team' for the last time to present their powerpoints: 'All About Me' to proud family members and Leeds City Academy staff.
Every student showed how well they have developed language and ICT skills during their first week in school.
Most of all this team also demonstrated how, after just a week, they have developed the confidence to stand in front of an audience and project in clear English. Never easy!
Family members and staff are proud of not only the progress they have made but the friendships they have developed during their first few weeks of school.
Ms Mitchell said "Congratulations to them all, we wish them every success in their new school careers."
