Over the last two years we have been corresponding with a French School in Brittany – their teacher Bea has taken some time out to sail to Scotland and visit us here on Raasay. Their voyage has an Eco focus and a cultural exchange. Pupils were delighted to welcome them to Raasay and to our school and our first day of meeting together involved a trip out onto the beautiful schooner, The Bilbo. The children had a wonderful time learning about the boat, the journey, Breton culture and language. The pupils and staff were treated to delicious organic apple juice from their farm in france and traditional nougat. We also met the school mascot – Cookie the sheep who has been travelling with them. Tomorrow we look forward to welcoming them to our school where they will share with us pictures from their blog and voyage before joining us for lunch. The children look forward to sharing their Gaelic poetry which they are learning for the Mod and holding a ‘lesson’ for our visitors on local history and culture.
