SULLY Primary School recently welcomed a host of teachers from foreign countries as part of a project promoting cultural awareness.
Four visitors from Norway, two from Germany, two from the Czech Republic, two from Latvia and one from France made the trip, and were treated to a packed programme of events as part of the Comenius Project, including visiting St Fagans National History Museum, and an evening of Welsh culture provided by staff and pupils at Sully school.
They met with the Mayor of the Vale of Glamorgan, Eric Hacker, and Vale AM Jane Hutt who gave them a tour of the Senedd.
Cardiff South and Penarth AM Vaughan Gething visited the school to talk to the teachers about the structure and workings of the Welsh Government.
Sully Primary project co-ordinator Amanda Best said: “They all said that they had thoroughly enjoyed their visit and especially enjoyed being in school and learning more about our eduction system.
“The project enables teachers from different countries to exchange good practice which will further enhance our pupils' understanding of other cultures.
“The pupils will undertake a variety of projects in school developed through the theme of ‘Celebrations of Culture through Music', where they will share our cultural heritage with other schools in Europe and vice versa.”
The school thanked Waitrose who sponsored the event and provided cakes.
