On Friday 24 March we welcomed pupils and teachers from the Collège Notre Dame de Grâce in Ardres, France. Mill Hill School pupils met their French pen pals and enjoyed a traditional English breakfast with them in the Dining Hall before giving them a tour of the School. The French pupils then shadowed their English pen pals to experience a typical day at school in England. This was an exciting opportunity for both sets of pupils to practice their language skills in a real-life situation and provided some unforgettable moments of cross-cultural understanding.
Special thanks go to Ms Azkarai, Modern Language Assistant, Ms Fernandez Rodriguez, Teacher of Spanish and French, Ms Josselin, Housemistress of Winfield, and Ms Catena Catena, Head of Spanish for their support during the visit.
