Comenius-Bordeaux in France

In May 2013, 17 students and 3 teachers visited school in Bordeaux in France. It was the first foreign visit in our Comenius project – Back to the Future. Apart from our school, Holland, France and Great Britain participate in this project.

After arriving to the airport in Bordeaux, our students were taken by French families to their houses where they had opportunity to get to know each other.

Next day everyone met at St. Andre School and we participated in different lessons - Spanish, French or Art. During the lunch break students and teachers from 4 countries danced the flash mob together at the school yard.

We had opportunity to visit Dune de Pyla – the tallest sand dune in Europe with the wonderful view of the ocean and the coast.

We also took part in the international championship. In mixed teams we tried to manage in typical Basque sports.

In the evening students met at hosts’ houses to cook traditional French dishes.

The conclusion of that great visit was the farewell party in which students, teachers and hosts participated. We could show our dancing, listen Basque songs and say thank you to our French hosts with hope to see soon.
