Liskeard School & Community College was delighted to welcome 49 students and staff from a school in Belgium. The group were visiting the South West and paid a special visit to the school to have a taster of British school life.

After a welcome from Assistant Head Teacher Mrs Penberthy and Modern Foreign Languages Teacher Mrs Lofthouse, They started the day with PE Teacher Mr Lemin and a group of Sixth Former Leaders to take part in some team building activities whilst enjoying the glorious Cornish sunshine.

Students then met their pen pals from Year 9 and 10 and enjoyed some speaking activities in the Modern Foreign Languages department with Mrs Lofthouse, Mrs Waters and Miss Wynn which proved to be great practice for both sets of students as they showed lots of enthusiasm and determination to communicate.

They then spent an hour in Science with Mr Davis and Ms Barnes, followed by Engineering and Computer Science with Mr Meier and Mr Baird enjoying a range of activities as students discussed how impressed they were by the diverse British curriculum.

With a British quiz and some more activities with Year 9 10 students benefitted from conversations in French, and discovering information about the Belgian way of life.

Mrs Lofthouse said “It was a great day for both sets of students and it was great to see everyone communicating in French and English.”
