Thank you staff and students who helped host our visiting Spanish students!
We were really lucky to host a group of 14 students from Madrid within our school last week. We teamed them up with students from Years 8, 9 and 12 who acted as their buddies. We are really proud of how welcoming all our students and staff were throughout the visit.
The Spanish students went to all lessons within Key Stage 3 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The grand finale was entering a relay team at Sports Day where they won gold medals.
KES student have found friends for life and some even went on a trip to London with their Spanish buddies and the Broadstairs English Centre. We haven’t said goodbye yet though, they will be coming back on Thursday to watch Oliver!, the school production.
Andy Somers, the Broadstairs English Centre Liason Officer, had this to say about the visit:
“Fantastic feedback from our Spanish group that went to King Ethelbert School. Our students absolutely loved their two weeks at the school. In particular the Languages Faculty, but also the whole school were amazing and made sure the students and the group leader had a brilliant time. Miss Smith and her team worked tirelessly to organise the buddies and timetables for the group. What a fantastic faculty they are, some of the best MFL lessons I have ever seen.
Thank you so much for agreeing to take the group, I hope you had a good experience with the Spanish visitors too, and I look forward to developing further projects between King Ethelbert and the Broadstairs English Centre”.
