French visitors visit schoolPosted: 13th May 2019
Pen pals who have been writing to each other for the last year got to meet during a twinning visit.
A group of 68 students from France visited Forest Hall School as part of the Stansted and Rungis twinning.
The visiting students were given a presentation about the school before meeting their pen pals.
The French students were also given a tour of the school and had lunch with their new friends in the canteen.
Year 8 Forest Hall student Holly Ellison said: “It was interesting to meet our pen pals and find out what schools are like in France. There are lots of differences, but some similarities.
“I am looking forward to visiting my pen pal and the school next year.”
Head of school Hannah Jones said: “This has been a great opportunity for our students to meet their pen pals. Students had time to get to know each other more and practice their spoken French language.
“It is always important that we ensure our students learn about different cultures, ways of life and languages.
“I hope out visit next year will further allow students to develop their understanding and awareness of French culture and schools.”
