Span­ish Visitors

Thank you staff and stu­dents who helped host our vis­it­ing Span­ish students!

Spanish medal winners

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”.
