Twinning with Bodilis school
Holbeton twinned with Bodilis in Brittany in 1992. In the past, there have been exchanges between the two primary schools. This is, of course, in addition to the “main” visits with the village community. This has given the learning of French at Holbeton Primary School a real focus. French speakers in the community also come and support teaching on a volunteer basis, so the children have the opportunity to practice their skills. Children are taught games and songs to share with the children from Bodolis and a system of pen pals is just getting underway too.
