Teacher Sharon Barnes and Students from the German department at Fairfield Secondary School arranged an informal evening to talk about their trip to Hannover. Students said that after the trip “they could see the relevance of learning German and were much more motivated”. Linking up with counterparts from the IGS Roderbruch secondary in Hannover, the students spent several days exploring Hannover and undertaking some fun based language tasks. One of the highlights for the boys was seeing Hannover 96 footballers training and visiting the stadium for a match. Members of the BHC executive attended the evening and offered to support the development of the link between the schools. Bristol University German Department was also represented and Education consultants Myers-Insole also gave a presentation about their proposed education project for the 70th anniversary celebrations next year. Fairfield has been offered the opportunity to take part in this project and further discussions were planned.
