BRADWELL Infants School hosted visitors from across Europe at the launch of a new healthy living project.

Teachers from Poland, Germany, the Czech Republic and Italy visited the school to begin their two-year Comenius partnership, supported by The British Council.

The visitors spent three days observing school activities and eating healthy lunches with the pupils, and joined their hosts for their traditional Harvest Festival service in Saint Barnabas Church, celebrated enthusiastically through song and prayer.

Boxes, filled by the pupils with donations of food, were gratefully received by the Sheffield the Cathedral Archer Project, which feeds vulnerable and homeless people.

Headteacher Geoff Wharton said their European visitors had been impressed by the exemplary behaviour and abilities of the pupils.

“It is an exciting time for the school,” he added.

“We have all enjoyed meeting our European partners and exchanging ideas. We are keen to share our work and promote enduring friendships across Europe.”
