International Student Visitors

Through our links with Kingston Study School, we are delighted to be able to host groups of primary aged students from the Far East at St Peter's.

In the summer of 2019, we hosted two groups in school. One group from Fengxian School in Shanghai, China and one from Hua Mao Foreign Language School in Ningbo, China.

While our visitors were with us, our children thought about the personal attribute of courage and how we might feel travelling to a country with different language, food and customs, so that we could make our guests feel welcome in our school.

During their time with us the students join our normal classes for a week and are paired up with a 'buddy'. The children always impress us by working and playing well together - proving that language really is no barrier to making friends. It is also lovely to see our visitors becoming more confident in speaking as the week goes on.
