Tara (Form 3) was a prize winner in this year’s Irish Austrian Society German essay competition. The competition attracted its highest ever number of entries, with over 400 students taking part. Tara’s prizewinning entry was a letter to a fictional Austrian penpal about ‘Life in Lockdown’ in which she talked about her new dog Massie, her love of music, online learning and the famous Salzburger Festspiele. Well done Tara!
Prizewinners were guests-of-honour on Friday 8 October at the residence of the Ambassador of the Republic of Austria, Mr Thomas Nader, where Tara was presented with her prize in the Junior Category.
