Champs-sur-Marne students visit Community School

Students from Champs-sur-Marne visit BSCS.

A party of students from Bradley Stoke’s twin town of Champs-sur-Marne (France) visited Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) for a day earlier this month.

The students were welcomed by members of the Bradley Stoke Twinning Association before going on to take part in a day of activities at the school, the Leisure Centre and the Willow Brook Centre.

In the afternoon, students from the visiting and host schools joined together for a music concert.

Priscilla Hellyer, teacher at the Lycée Descartes in Champs-sur-Marne, said:

“The students had an amazing experience in Bradley Stoke: they were impressed by the school and all its high-tech equipment, they were surprised to notice all the different subjects their counterparts study in Bradley Stoke (cooking, arts, object design…). They really enjoyed meeting them and working with them to help them prepare their French exam which will take place next Monday.”

“The concert given by students of both schools was also an event they will always remember. Then our students went to the commercial centre [Willow Brook Centre] and leisure centre to run an opinion poll: the people from Bradley Stoke proved to be very friendly and eager to answer their questions.”

“So that day was a success in many ways, and we wanted to thank again the teachers and staff from the Bradley Stoke Community School who did an amazing job to prepare our visit, as well as Tom Aditya and Chris Lee who welcomed us.”

School students from Champs-sur-Marne visit Bradley Stoke

A party of 35 students from Bradley Stoke’s twin town of Champs-sur-Marne (France) visited Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) earlier this week.

BSCS French teacher Sheriban Fekaj welcomed the exchange group to the school on Wednesday and has sent us this report:

“We have been extremely pleased to welcome 35 students from Champs-sur-Marne and their teacher, Priscilla Hellier, to BSCS on the 6th of April. It was a huge success and a fantastic experience for both our students and the French students.”

“They took part in a treasure hunt in the morning with our year 11 and went to observe art, music, French and geography lessons as well as PE.”

“In the afternoon the French students taught French songs to year 6 students from Meadowbrook Primary school.”

“After school they had a party in the Post-16 Centre with some of our year 10, 11 and 12 students.”

“It was a fantastic day and has strengthened our current links with Champs-Sur-Marne and we are hoping to continue such a positive exchange between our students.”
