French Alevel Conference at Warwick University

Our French AS and A2 students were invited to a conference organised by the department of French studies and by the British Academy.
They studied some excerpts from modern Francophone literature from sub-Saharan Africa, then  listened to some popular music from modern-day Congo. The day finished with a screening of the documentary Benda Bilili.

It was a fantastic experience for all!

Supporting Japan

Y9 students (Mr Thomson's and Ms Uhara's class) wrote some messages of support for children in Fukushima.

Last summer Kyoko, our Japanese Language Assistant joined the volunteers in Hokkaido, her home region.
Children who live in Fukushima - where the Tsunami damaged a nuclear power station - couldn't to go out and play, even during their summer holidays. So Hokkaido in the north of Japan offered them to come and spend a few weeks or a month there.

Radiation is still very strong around Fukushima, and the people and children who live there need both energy and support.
Here is also a website where you can find out how to help the children of Fukushima.
