BBC Awards speaking contest 2010

And the winner for the semi finals is: Steven van Dalen (left). Congrats. Robin and Yosiane should have been there as well, but that is my subjective opinion of course, all the more given the arguments the jury voiced and their surprising choice accordingly.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the event yesterday in Nieuwegein
. Picture one: my boys: Steven and Robin supposedly doing some last minute preparations.

The boys were in heat I, while Yosiane was in heat III - in a different classroom (see pictures 3 and 4).

Picture 5: Steven collecting his first prize in his heat.

Picture 6: Robin posing for a Facebook picture.

Oh and if you think I was the only teacher present ... My fellow English teacher Andr
é Janssen was there was well. And to top it all, team manager Dick Barkey decided to come along as well, giving one of the jury members one of his famous stern looks to show his disapproval of some of the results. ;-)
