PUBLISHED: 17:00 08 June 2012
YOUNGSTERS got the chance to welcome international visitors this week as part of a project running for the past four years.
Locking Primary School in Meadow Drive welcomed the principal and two teachers from Mahanaga Maha college in Sri Lanka.
The project is looking at the themes of diversity, equality, roles and responsibilities and similarities and differences.
Principal Gamini Dasanatha joined teachers Nadee Kulasooriya and Chandrika Kumari to take part in lessons and attend concerts at the school.
One class saw teachers and pupils talk about the differences between English and Sri Lankan birds.
Locking Primary headteacher Joanne Jones said: “I think they have had a fantastic time and they have learned a lot – but we have learned a lot from them too.”
