Projects » English Olympiad

Enriching learners in Grades 10 to 12...

The English Olympiad is a national English competition sponsored by De Beers that draws between 4000 and 5000 entries each year.

The competition is organised jointly by the Grahamstown Foundation and the South African Council for English Education (SACEE).

The aims of the English Olympiad are to enrich learners in Grades 10 to 12 with an opportunity to experience the English language and its literature through engaging with the cultural and social issues from a prescribed text in a personal and creative way.

The Olympiad:

  • encourages a proactive self-study approach to learning
  • develops English language skills and appreciation
  • provides an opportunity to compete and be assessed nationally, and to continually improve
