La Gâzette du Sé commente:

We need to mind our languages

The TGJ (Jèrriais GCSE-equivalent exam) course continues, offering a qualification in Jersey’s own language, but German will no longer be studied in Jersey.

A reminder: it’s not too early for any parents whose children have attended classes in primary schools and are proceeding to secondary schools to make enquiries about enrolment for the TGJ.

Letters will be going out this term about transfers from Jèrriais classes in primary to secondary, and also for new enrolments for beginners in new classes starting in primaries in September.
