Staff and students at St Michael’s CE Primary School, Alnwick, were recently joined by a group of Panamanian students who are currently studying at Edinburgh College for four months to improve their English.
Headeteacher Gavin Johnston said: “The students, who hope to become teachers in Panama, spent time in classes and were fascinated at the different education systems in Panama and the UK.
“It is a great opportunity for our children to speak to and interact with people from a different part of the world.”
The school also recently held a Star Wars-themed workshop, see story above right.
