Teachers from across Europe have been visiting Hethersett to learn more about life in an English school. 

The visit of 16 teachers to Hethersett Middle School from Romania, Spain, Sweden and Italy is part of the EEC funded Comenius Project that funds schools to work together on a community project. 

Six schools are currently taking part in the project to look at different lifestyles, customs and education in different countries. Hethersett Middle School is the first British school to take part. 

“The project gives as the perfect opportunity to study schooling and customs in different countries. We wanted to become involved because we saw the value of exchanging ideas,” said Head of Hethersett Middle School Andy Whittle. 

Over the past two years teachers from Hethersett Middle have travelled to all the countries taking part. 

“It has definitely widened our horizons and given us an insight into how education is delivered in other parts of Europe,” Mr Whittle added. 

This month (May) it was the turn of staff from schools in Tradate and Savona, Italy, Staffanstorp in Sweden, Timisora in Romania and Badajoz in Spain to visit Norfolk. 

During a week long visit they spent time in the classroom with local children, looking at our lifestyles and what gives our specific culture its identity. The visitors also found time for a number of social events and visits to Norwich and the North Norfolk coast.
