Clevedon schoolchildren had an Australian visitor last week.

A VISITOR from the other side of the world travelled thousands of miles to meet schoolchildren in Clevedon.

Pupils in reception and years one and two at All Saints East Clevedon Primary School have been studying the country of Australia as their latest class topic.

This has included making colourful displays in their classrooms, including one of the Great Barrier Reef, another of Ayer’s Rock and an indoor beach.

On Thursday, colourful character Bruce McShane paid the children a visit to talk to them about Australia’s history and traditions.

After a song and ceremonial dance, one teacher also agreed to have her face painted.
