CAE’s visit to an English boarding school!

Yesterday our South American group visited an English boarding school, the Princess Helena College in Hertfordshire.


Our day started with a tour of the school and we then joined in with some lessons! We joined lessons in…History…German…French…Geography…English…Biology…and many more!

One of the favourite lessons was photography. Students had to take photos in and around the school, that would create an alphabet collage, their name or a certain word.

Our students took the cameras and explored…

Here is the work that our students produced:

We had lunch together, which was followed by a group activity with the PHC students.

In the afternoon we joined more lessons, before getting the coach back to Cambridge.

We were made to feel very welcome and it was a fantastic and very interesting day 🙂

Thank you to everyone at PHC!

Bryony’s Class

Last week in Bryony’s class the students were learning about graffiti and debating whether it’s art or vandalism. They looked at Banksy pictures and tried to find the messages behind the pictures.
