Breakspeare School in Abbots Langley welcomes pupils from Europe as part of Comenius project
An Abbots Langley school for children with special needs is hosting pupils and staff from five other European schools this week.
The visit is part of a two year Comenius project, one of the most popular international educational programmes.
Caroline Day-Lewis, deputy head teacher at Breakspeare School, said: "As a school we already have the international schools award and we are keen to work globally. We already have links with South Africa. We are looking to extend our links across Europe as we feel it is very beneficial for the students."
Each country hosts its partners during the project and Breakspeare School, in Gallows Hill Lane, will welcome 33 people to Britain from October 13 to 17.
Yesterday the diverse group took part in cricket games led by coaches from Abbots Langley Cricket Club, where the students from different countries learned more about the English game of cricket.
Ms Day-Lewis said: "To link the schools and learning together we used sports from all the different countries. For the British sports day yesterday we did cricket. The students all seemed to enjoy it and it went really well."
Watford’s elected mayor Dorothy Thornhill attended the opening ceremony on Monday which took place at the school.
