Our Partner School from Spain, Nuryana School, came to visit us this term. They spent two wonderful days learning about English schools and culture, and doing activities with our Year 7 and Year 8 students. We hosted 300 Spanish visitors and what an amazing two days we, teachers and students, had! We cannot wait to visit them in Tenerife next week!
Our students not only enjoyed practising their Spanish skills but also had fun playing traditional Spanish games and multiple races. We all had lunch together in the Canteen and finish the day with a fantastic city trail in Chichester. Our members of the International Team played an important role making sure that everything run smoothly and keeping everyone happy. Well done!
Before our visitors left, we took a group photo all together with the Ukrainian flag and read the following poem in two languages:
When you look for peace
Entonces la paz está contigo
When you search for peace
Entonces no es difícil encontrarla
When you want to keep peace alive
Entonces sigues las palomas blancas que vuelan sobre ti
When you make peace with others
Entonces el mundo entero vive en tu corazón
When you let peace be in the world
Entonces vives en un mundo maravilloso
When you allow peace flow around the world
Entonces el odio desaparecerá y el amor brotará
When you open the door for peace
Entonces la paz entra en tu vida
Let the peace prevail in our wonderful world

It was lovely seeing our students developing new friendships and learning about other cultures. What an incredible experience to remember! We are looking forward to hosting our Spanish friends next year again!
