Bangor Academy Strengthens Sister City Links with Virginia Beach, USA

Print

American VisitorsBangor Academy's Head Boy and Girl, Kyle Malcolm and Emma McCorry, welcomed visitors from Kempsville Middle School when they toured the Academy as part of a delegation from Bangor's twinned American city, Virginia Beach. The delegation met students who are already involved in projects to forge educational and student links with Kempsville Middle School.

Mrs Hanvey, one of the teachers in charge of Bangor Academy's International Activities Committee, said: "It was lovely to meet everyone face to face. We have been working hard to create these valuable links created through the Sister Cities project. Today gave us the opportunity to strengthen those links further."

In a busy itinerary, the American delegation met the teachers involved in the on-line "wikispaces" chat forum, watched the video made by 8A4 about Bangor Academy and the local area and had some time with the International Activities Committee to discuss future international links.
