A group from King Edward VI School in Morpeth were jumping for joy after finding out that their creative use of the French language had won a national contest.

Earlier this year, six Year 10 Modern Foreign Language and Music students teamed up with the aim of creating an original French pop song and accompanying music video to enter in a national competition organised by Francophonie UK in association with the Institut français du Royaume-Uni and supported by TV5Monde.

Their song ‘J'adore la musique’ was selected by the national jury and, along with the other finalists, they were invited to a virtual celebration where the winners were announced.

To mark the occasion, students, family and teachers came together for a evening of food, fun and festivities and all were delighted to discover that the KEVI group had been crowned national champions.

Throughout the process the students, and everyone involved in supporting them, championed the values of creativity and collaboration.
