IMAGINE CLUB NARROWS THE GAP
– NO LONGER POLES APART
Imagine Club, working with the British Council, continued with the exciting programme
of encouraging Polish children to learn English. After an eye-opening visit for
16 children from Chiddingstone Primary school to Poznan in Poland, The Imagine
Club has now successfully hosted a group of 20 Polish children with their teachers.
following gives some idea of the main activities that were undertaken, however the
pictures tell the whole story.
YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE INVOLVED IN OR SUPPORT THIS EXCITING PROJECT AS IT DEVELOPS
FURTHER THEN PLEASE CONTACT JOHN GORDON-REID.
CHIDDINGSTONE – TRIP
visitors took part in a whirlwind programme which was packed full of excitement
THURSDAY – arrive, meet the families and enjoy a fish & chip supper.
FRIDAY – visit Chiddingstone school, visit to Hever Castle, evening bonfire & fireworks
with a BBQ and games.
SATURDAY – Imagine day (see YUK!!!), film night
followed by teachers dinner.
SUNDAY – Sightseeing in London with a farewell family
dinner with performances and games.
MONDAY – Final farewell & depart
for airport. Feedback from Poland has been very positive with one Polish father
reporting that his daughter now speaks to her family in English which sadly no-one
else in the family can understand!
It is hoped that the project can continue
so that we can offer these opportunities to more children. Please contact
us if you feel you can support us in any way.
