We are delighted to announce that on the evening of the 25th March 2014, the school hall was transformed into the French bistro and nightspot once more, as we welcomed our friends from Henvic, Brittany. For many years now, the school has been working in partnership with the Starcross Twinning Association, in order to bring the two village communities together.
After visiting the school in the morning, where Bernard and Francois demonstrated their wonderful accordion and bombard playing, the children then took part in Breton Dancing sessions themselves, which proved to be a huge amount of fun.
At the end of the school day, Marie-Helene and the other ladies used the school kitchen to cook lovely crepes for the children and their families, and the queue was literally out of the school! Savoury and sweet pancakes were offered, and they were really well enjoyed by everyone (including Mr. Ireland, who had an extra one for luck).
As well as helping the Twinners, led magnificently last night by Kate Manley-Tucker and the other members of the group, we also managed to raise nearly £80 for our Solar Schools project, as well as around half that amount for the PTFA, through sales of teas and coffees. Many thanks to Mrs. Gill, and Sarah (Cameron’s mum) for running the stall last night.
It truly was a fantastic night, and I hope that we can continue to do this in the future. Well done everyone!
