Two students from Nobel International School Algarve in Porches have received prestigious awards from Cambridge Assessment International Education to acknowledge their outstanding performances, as “Top in the World” for Portuguese and Travel and Tourism, in the summer 2017 Cambridge examination series.
Sofia Horta, IGCSE Portuguese, and Roberto van der Slikke, AS Travel and Tourism, proudly received their Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards at a Head of School Achievers’ Tea, where they discussed their plans for the future.
Sofia, who joined the school in Year 10, and Roberto, who has been a pupil at the school since Year 1, both plan to study at Dutch universities and Roberto has already applied for the BSc in Business Administration at UvA, Amsterdam.
Head of School Mike Farrer said that the awards recognised the talent, dedication and commitment of both learners and staff. “These are really fantastic achievements that both pupils will remember for the rest of their lives. They are both delightful pupils and excellent role models at school and should be very proud,” he said.
“To achieve Top in the World at an international examination in any subject is truly remarkable. They have a bright future ahead of them and I wish them every success in their future.”
The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards programme celebrates the success of learners taking Cambridge examinations in over 40 countries around the world.
