Our French Department recently welcomed a group of 25 students from Collège Saint Michel in Bourgoin-Jallieu who were visiting Derry as part of a European exchange programme. Students in 9A and 9B listened to the French students’ presentations on their home town and also delivered their own detailed presentations on life in Derry. Our French visitors, accompanied by their teacher Madame Namur, were very impressed with our pupils’ level of French and enjoyed a guided visit around our classrooms.
