7. HORS-CATÉGORIE AND FRENCH SPEAKING STUDENTS
Candidates are considered hors-catégorie if they fall in to either of the following categories:
- Those who have the opportunity of receiving support in French at home (e.g. French speaking parent/s);
- Have spent more than six months in a French speaking country in the last 2 years.
- Have been educated in a French bilingual school for more than 2 years.
Hors-catégorie students are marked according to the same standards as others but are competing against other hors categorie candidates only.
We ask for teachers’ cooperation in writing H-C next to the names of these hors-categorie candidates at the time of registration, as well as explaining to the students the meaning of H-C.
A recording of the poems is available for free download from our website.
Candidates called for the Finals will receive an individual convocation slip sent to the school and passed on by the teacher.
- ORAL: Y3-10 finalists recite the same poem as previously recited during competition. Y11-12 finalists will have general conversation only (4mins)
