Last week we were happy to welcome a group of Spanish pupils and their teachers in our Bright Horizons community. They spent time at our school and some of our families, and next week some of us are going to be visiting them in Spain. Our Year 6 pupils interviewed the Spanish pupils to see how their lives are different or similar to ours.

We are very grateful to our Spanish friends for their visit because we got a chance to compare cultures and we found out that we are not that different after all. They spend time with us at school and got to share in our Royal Tea Party and we also had some fun times outside school. We took them on a field trip to the Zagreb ZOO and had a wonderful day there. We were so excited to find the plaque of our school sponsoring the red panda at the zoo. It was a very cute moment ! By the way, our panda is thriving and our school can really be proud of it. Here are some photos of the visit. Follow us for more stories about our own experience of Spain when we return!

(A big thank you to our dear Ms Thomas for the photos.)
