Spanish exchange visits Ballard

Earlier in the year our Spanish students traveled to the south of Spain to meet with pupils from ‘The English Centre‘, near Seville. Now it is the turn of our Ballard family to host pupils. For blogs from the trip to Spain – Blog 4, Blog 3, Blog 2, Blog 1.

Our first day

Our first day of the Spanish exchange at Ballard.

Senior Spanish exchange computers

Our Spanish exchange team working with Ballard pupils to prepare presentations.

The students started the day working with their English peers and preparing a presentation about Spanish topics that they then delivered to Year 7 and 8 pupils. They did a great job!

 Senior Spanish exchange croquet

Learning from the master – a lesson in the English game of croquet!

Later on, the Spanish students enjoyed a croquet lesson with Mr Reid, our Headmaster (it cannot get more English than this!).
