STUDENTS from Spain, Poland and Greece got stuck into a rounders match as part of an exchange programme with St Katherine’s School.
For the past two years, the Pill school has been taking part in the international Comenius project which is funded by the British Council and has already seen 19 of its students travel to Spain, Poland and Greece to stay with host families.
This project culminated in students from all three countries visiting North Somerset and St Katherine’s School for a week of work and activities, staying with English host families.
The visitors joined in lessons, visited Clifton Suspension Bridge and ss Great Britain, enjoyed an open-top bus tour and went on Weston’s Grand Pier.
St Katherine’s School catering and hospitality manager, Paul Mingo-West said: “The students involved from St Katherine’s will have learnt so much from spending time with their European counterparts: how they live, how they work, how they learn and how they have fun.
