Ocotal, Nicaragua comes to LPA

Pupils recently enjoyed a visit from Dr Jorge Calderón and Maria José Guerrero who were being hosted by SOL (Swindon Ocotal Link) as part of the 25th Twinning Anniversary.  Pupils learned about Nicaragua, its culture, dance and experience of hurricanes.

An educational and fun filled time was had by all and Jorge and Maria José took back letters and expressions of good wishes from our pupils in the hope that we can establish more regular contact with their contemporaries in that part of the world.  Pupils are encouraged to work hard on their Spanish as they might be lucky enough to use it if they visit Nicaragua as part of the twinning programme when they are in Sixth Form.
