Teaching and translating ancient Latin since 1986

Burnaby Latin Students Honour Role

The Latin programme for International Students in the Burnaby School District is still relatively new - only 4 years.  And yet in that short time students have achieved some very impressive results in open competition.

2014: This year our students won 1 gold and two silver - a great result for the three we attempted the level III National Latin Exam.

Sylvia Notermans achieved a Summa Cum Laude Gold Medal.

Giulia di Carli and Giuseppe Cancian each achieved a Maxima Cum Laude Silver

2013: We've got 2 top results in two separate contests from two different students.

Francesco Albe achieved a Summa Cum Laude Gold Medal in the Level 3 National Latin Exam.

Pietro Lavoni finished 3rd in the Classical Association of Canada's High School Latin Test.  That's 3rd out of 110 across the country!

2012: The International students in struck gold in the 2012 National Latin Exam.  Nine students attempted one of the toughest Level 3 exams in some years and four achieved a Summa Cum Laude Gold Medal!

Congratulations to Gold Medalists: Pierandrea Cancian, Giovanna Magli, Cecilia Marchiorello & Francesco Tramballi.

Congratulations also go to Silver Medalists: Valeria Naimzada & Valeria Ricci and Alessandra Kroglowski & Julian Ernst for achieving an award of merit.

2011: Valentina Beux won 1st place in the Classical Association of Canada's High School Latin Translation Contest. This is a contest open to all high school Latin students across Canada. Valentina had the added challenge of converting the Latin into English, which is not her native language! Optimam victoriam, Valentina!
