Congratulations to Sarah-Maria Adams, Natasha Gilles, Catherine Nettleship and Stuart Wilson from The Wallace High School who took part in the final round of the All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad in Dublin City University. The winners  will win the opportunity to represent Ireland at the International Linguistics Olympiad in Slovenia in July 2012.

The international contest challenges secondary school students to apply logic and reasoning skills to solve complex puzzles in unfamiliar languages. In solving the problems, students learn about the fascinating world of computational linguistics.
