The annual Leeds University Classics reading competition took place on 2 March, at which a Birkdale pupil was awarded first prize.
Three students from Birkdale; Ray Cheung, Harriet Freeman and Ben Oliver took part. This year there was a new category for reading a passage in translation. Ben gave an eloquent version of an unhappy Dido from Ovid’s Heroides for which he was awarded first prize.
