In September 2015 we have started a pen pal project with Ecole Etienne Chazoule, Biars sur Cère, France, in our French after school club.
In September 2016, we had a new French school that joined our pen pal project - Ecole Emile Doucet, Tourlaville. We exchanged letters, cake recipes and Christmas carols. We still are in touch with both schools.
On the 18th of July 2017, our school organised the first cross-school event in the area. The event, called ‘’Franco chanson et Franco- poésie’’ brought together pupils, teachers and parents from 5 primary schools in the area. The pupils performed songs, poems or short plays in French, for a whole afternoon of celebrating languages.
On the 5th of January 2018 we were awarded the Intermediate International School Award, by the British Council.
The pupils have created different logos to represent our international project. Please click here to see the logos.
