This term, a group of French students from the Lycée Polyvalent Victor Duruy in Bagnères-de-Bigorre visited Malvern College with their teacher Mme Delphine Lapaj.
During the morning they shadowed some of our Sixth Formers, and in the afternoon they visited the Sports Centre and took part in climbing activities. They toured the campus and were particularly impressed by the architecture and school’s facilities. The French pupils also remarked on the friendly rapport between pupils and staff here which was quite different from their own experience of schooling.
Bagnères-de-Bigorre, is a town in the Pyrenees not far from Lourdes, is twinned with Malvern, and this visit to Malvern College was arranged by Mrs Gina Butler of the Malvern Twinning Association, with the help of Mr Major and Mrs Clemit. Our thanks go to Mrs Butler for involving Malvern College in this venture.
Christine Clemit, Head of French
