As part of the National Grandparent’s Day celebrations, on Friday 2nd October a group of BCHS Year 9 students visited Shevington High School in Wigan.
The Shevington students had been baking all morning, so our students were presented with a lovely afternoon tea, consisting of scones and cream, cakes, tea and coffee. Our students mixed with the students and grandparents of Shevington High School and discussed their respective schools, favourite lessons and hobbies.
The afternoon tea was followed by a musical performance by three talented Shevington Year 11 students, who played piano and sang a selection of Beatles songs.
The students from both schools enjoyed the afternoon, and were happy to make new friends; in the first of many planned opportunities to link with Shevington High School and widen our students’ experiences of learning from and celebrating other cultures.
