On Friday students took part in lessons in the French schools, and then enjoyed a crêpe and hot chocolate in a café. In the afternoon they visited a sea museum where they were able to touch some starfish and sting rays in the touch-pool, as well as visit a nuclear submarine and a Titanic exhibition. In the evening the Year 11 and Sixth Form students were invited to a reception at the town hall to celebrate the long lasting relationship between Poole and Cherbourg.
An article has been published in a French newspaper today following the official welcome. The title of the article: The French welcome their English friends.
