The Mary Lauren Brown School of Excellence has won the Francophone Week competition held by the French Embassy in Liberia. The Francophone Week is observed annually by francophone countries across the world, with programs designed for school children.
In Liberia, the French Embassy celebrated the Francophone Week by hosting a dictation of French words competition. Students from the Mary Lauren Brown School of Excellence, St. Peters Lutheran, Muslim Congress, and the William V.S. Tubman High School were asked to correctly spell French words and put them into sentences as the words were dictated.
The Mary Lauren Brown School of Excellence emerged as winner during the competition, taking the first place while the Muslim Congress High School took the second place.
12-year-old Riord Yamak, and Dornny Kaba 13, both of the Mary Lauren Brown School of Excellence, told The NewDawn they were proud of their French teacher and their school for providing them an opportunity to participate and win.
Riord Yamak and Dornny Kaba of the 6th Grade class were assisted by their colleague Williams Tueken of the 5th Grade class during the competition. Meanwhile, the Principal of the Mary Lauren Brown School of Excellence, Phebean K. Tobey, has praised her students for the excellent work they did for the school.
Madam Tobey said she was convinced that her school is providing quality education for Liberian kids. She urged parents to enroll their kids at the Mary Lauren Brown School of Excellence for quality French education.
She said her students winning the French competition, which marked the observance of the Francophone Week is a strong signal that the school is great, and paid special homage to the French instructor of the school.
