Twinning with Bodilis school
Holbeton twinned with Bodilis in Brittany in 1992. Every year since then there have been exchanges between the two primary schools. This is, of course, in addition to the “main” visits. We take it in turns to visit and to host. Thus years 5 and 6 from Holbeton visit Bodilis one year, then they visit us the next. The visit is designated "out of classroom learning" by the education authority. French has been taught at Holbeton Primary School over the years by fluent French speakers in the community on a volunteer basis, so the children are able to use this opportunity to improve their skills.
In 2017 it is our turn to visit Bodilis. Holbeton Twinning Association assists with the organization, the events, and helps towards the finances. Mrs Rundle is planning to use this friendship to boost language skills by encouraging pen pals.
