Comenius visit to Hungary October 2014
Sunday! We all arrived at Stansted ready for our journey to Hungary on Monday. We stayed in a lovely hotel & had a good nights sleep. Unlike the teachers!
Day 1 Monday was mostly spent travelling. We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon and went for a walk to Lake Balaton, which was beautiful! On Tuesday we were up early to catch the bus to the school. This school is over 100 years old.
Day 1 We were welcomed by an international drumming group who were amazing. Children from 5 to 16 were playing the drums.
Day 1 We were welcomed to the town by the Mayor. The teachers received a nice present to take home with them!
Tour of the school Familiar things! Staffroom – every teacher has a desk here The deputy head’s office was huge! Hot drinks machine. The teachers thought one of these would be good in the staff room.
Day 1. The children in the English class sang us some songs they had learned.
Food in Hungary The food was ‘interesting’. We tried everything. Some things we liked….others, we did not like!
Day 1 An ‘It’s a Knockout’ competition was organised for the afternoon. We represented England, and were helped by some of the Hungarian children.
Day 1 We presented Andi with some English story books and her very own Wheaty for her school.
