Excitement for the Senior 2s culminated on Friday 3rd May, when they finally met their French pen-pals. Thirty students accompanied by 3 teachers from the Collège Stanislas in Cannes, France arrived in school. Our girls were corresponding in French and the French boys and girls answered in English throughout the scholastic year. Topics of discussion were hobbies, Malta and French recipes.
The French group is in Malta for a week’s visit. After a brief encounter in the school yard, we walked out of school together and headed for Independence Gardens for a picnic. The whole group interacted and practiced speaking French and English. Small gifts were exchanged, as well as French and Maltese delicacies. Finally, our girls sang the French Eurovision song of 2018 ‘’Mercy’’, a song with a very emotional message. We then made our way back to school where the whole group exchanged phone numbers and social media addresses before bidding eachother ‘’Au revoir et à bientôt’’.
