2:00pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in Latest News
Pupils at St Dunstan’s School celebrated the start of a two-year project linking them to 11 European schools with a launch assembly.
The project will allow the school in Calne to share ideas and experiences with schools in countries including Turkey, Italy, Greece, Iceland and Lithuania.
For the assembly, pupils made bunting decorated with different greetings in European languages and admired birds of prey brought in by Wings and Talons in Lacock.
Pupils will also stick feathers with details of their hopes and dreams for the project on a picture of a Peregrine falcon in the reception area.
Acting head teacher Helen Warrick said: “They were excited, but they had to be extremely quiet because otherwise the birds would get frightened. They were captivated by them.”
Next week assistant head teacher Tony Cook will travel to Lithuania to meet teachers from the other schools and tell them about life at St Dunstan’s.
