Earlier in the week we had some great suggestions for ways to enforce the English Only policy downstairs in the student lounge, and the ideas with the most votes won a prize. Congratulations to EstelleNamiNuria and Elisabeth who won First Prize, which was two 2-for-1 vouchers for a Kayaking trip with BWT! Their idea was: If you speak another language, you have to do a pledge on graduation day (like a song, dance or little game).

The runner up prize went to Shinsuke and Maito who won a 6-pack of beer! Their idea was: If a student speaks different languages, they must pay money. This money can be used for improvements to the school.

Thanks to everyone who came up with all the wonderful ideas! We were very impressed with the wide range of ideas and will be looking closely at whether it is possible to implement some of these.
