FRENCH exchange students on a visit to the Priory School in Spalding were treated to all kinds of cultural experiences.

One of the highlights was a full blown Scottish Burns night, complete with local piper Hughie Berry, who piped in the haggis before reading Burns’ Address to a Haggis.

Other treats during the week-long stay for the nine students and three staff were a typical English coffee morning with home-made cake, learning how to make sausages, pizza and jelly as well as visits to Cadbury’s World, a farm and the Heritage Fishing Museum at Grimsby. The museum visit ended with supper at Turner’s fish and chip shop.

English students will visit the French school in May.
