Canterbury students from Years 7-12 competed in the 2022 Modern Language Teachers’ Association of Queensland (MLTAQ) Speech Contest, held at Griffith University last Sunday 11 September.

Our students presented in the Chinese, French, Japanese and Spanish language divisions against schools from across South-East Queensland.
