Richard Huish College students recently welcomed eleven French students from Lisieux to spend a day learning about student life. This was part of the wider exchange programme with Lisieux in Normandy which is twinned with Taunton that aims to promote civic and cultural links between the two towns.

The French students attended a variety of classes, which led to lively discussions about French and English schools, and on other days enjoyed the delights of St Fagans in Cardiff, Vivary Park, the Eat Taunton Festival and also remembered the fallen in a ceremony at the Normandy Stone.

A highpoint was the civic dinner in the company of the Mayors of Taunton and Lisieux. Sampling traditional English cuisine to the accompaniment of music provided by Huish students, Sion Wilson and Ross Conquer, there were speeches in French and English and Languages prizes awarded. The Parmin-Trevitt Prize was this year awarded to Caitlin Horne and Jennifer Poole for their achievements in French.

The host students will get to partake in a return visit to Lisieux next May.
