Six Notre Dame Students studied hard and successfully passed their EMACT (East Midlands Association of Classical Teachers) Greek Certificate exam. The students have been part of a voluntary lunch time enhancement group run by A level Classics teacher Angela Yates, and have been reading up on ancient and modern Greek, and learning about the language, country, and culture.
Students Betty McDermott, Sarah Green, Louis Hickling and Luke Conmy have been studying for the past year and passed the beginners level EMACT Greek certificate in April 2018. Students Emily Howes and Fabian Newton-Edgar took the beginners level EMACT last year, and passed the intermediate level EMACT this April.
The EMACT Greek Certificate offers students an introductory qualification in ancient Greek, and is the only one of its kind in this subject area. The enhancement has been running for nine years at Notre Dame and has seen over 40 students devote their lunch break to studying for a qualification in a classical language.
