Hola! to Span­ish stu­dents

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS -

CHIL­DREN at Fal­li­b­roome Academy have made some new ami­gos as a re­sult of a school ex­change pro­gramme.

The school hosted 36 stu­dents from the Es­cola Sant Ger­vasi High School, near Barcelona for a week as part of an ex­change pro­gramme run by Poyn­ton-based com­pany Home to Home.

Their Cata­lan friends were each as­signed a ‘Fal- li­b­roome buddy’ and at­tended the full range of lessons and have ex­pe­ri­enced a pre­sen­ta­tion with chil­dren’s au­thor Joseph De­laney.

They even had a spe­cial ‘Cata­lan In­vi­ta­tion Race’ at the school sports day.

Di­rec­tor of teach­ing and learn­ing for mod­ern for­eign lan­guages, Jon Comyn, said: “Their visit has been a great suc­cess.

“And it’s cre­ated a real buzz around the school, which is great for lan­guage learn­ing and cre­at­ing in­ter­na­tional friend­ships.” Fal­li­b­roome is hop­ing to or­gan­ise a re­turn trip to Es­cola Sant Ger­vasi next year, to re­new the friend­ships that have blos­somed through­out the week.

Su­sana Boldú, from the Span­ish school, said: “They’ve lived a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence and met car­ing mates in an ex­cel­lent en­vi­ron­ment. Thank you all for this great week.”
