Students from Diss High School have been meeting their counterparts in Spain.

In March, 14 students and two members of staff travelled to Spain for a week to visit host school Colegio San Jose del Parque, in the north eastern suburb of Madrid.

It is the first time the school has taken part in a Spanish exchange scheme and the pupils were paired up beforehand and communicated with each other in the weeks leading up to the visit. They also stayed at each others’ homes.

At the end of June, the Spanish students visited Diss. One of the purposes of the exchange was to develop greater understanding, including the differences between living in the city and the countryside.

“The students were lucky that, during the time they were in Spain, the festival of San Jose took place and they were involved in two days of festivities,” said Sam Budds, Spanish and business teacher.

“They also had the opportunity to explore the centre of Madrid, visit the iconic Santiago Bernabeu stadium and the historic city of Toledo.”

The exchange proved just as enlightening for the Spanish students.

“The Spanish students were in awe of our beautiful countryside,” said Mr Budds

“They were impressed with the Corn Hall, the boardwalk and the Mere.

“The students also visited Norwich, London and Cambridge and spent a couple of days in school, which included a game of rounders.”
