Just over an hour ago a group of intrepid pupils from Class 6 and 1st ESO set out on one of the most exciting adventures St. Peter’s School has seen in many years! Accompanied by Miss Leahy and Miss Katie, Ana, Sara and Eduardo from 1st ESO, together with Xènia, Zaira, Sofía, Irene, Sander, Alex and Lorenzo, from Class 6 are travelling to New York City for a whistle-stop tour of “The Big Apple”, before moving upstate to Albany to spend a week at Robert C. Parker School, learning first-hand about the American way of life. They will attend classes, go on excursions with their new classmates and spent the rest of the day –and the night!- with their host family.
This fantastic cultural experience has been made possible by close collaboration between the two schools and much preparatory work on both sides of the Atlantic. We hope our Overseas Programme will be a great success and pupils from both schools will benefit greatly from it.
Our thanks are extended to Meg Taylor, Head of Robert C. Parker School, and everyone at the School -both staff and families- for making this visit possible.
