The Mobile School in Leeds enabled students and teachers from each of the partner schools to meet, develop links and explore the different cultures.

Students from all countries took part in learning workshops and gave presentations on their area and school. They also visited various local attractions to learn about England and local history. Our Comenius visitors also spent time at St. Mary’s.
