Brookmans Park pupils go Dutch!
PUPILS at a Brookmans Park school enjoyed a day of fun activities with youngsters from the Hatfield twin town of Zierikzee, Holland.
On Thursday, a group of 50 pupils and staff from Pontes Peter Zeeman School visited Chancellor’s School in Brookmans Park for a number of cross-curricular activities, including a maths challenge, history and geography quiz, rounders and basketball.
The day was rounded off with a traditional English supper of fish and chips, followed by a music concert with performances from sixth-form students.
A spokeswoman for the Pine Grove school said: “International links help pupils gain invaluable life experience and develop their skills in PHSE and citizenship, geography, English, art and more.
“Through linking our school can then support the The Global Dimension, Every Child Matters and the school development plan.
