A week ago a group of Year 10 students travelled to Amstelveen in Amsterdam to take part in the last leg of the Erasmus Student Exchange Project which started back in November 2017 with our first trip. It was also great to catch up with some of the teachers at Hermann Wesselink College who have previously visited Mounts Bay Academy over the past few years. On behalf of all those involved in the project I’d especially like to thank all the students who have taken part in the exchanges. They have all embraced the purpose of the project which has been to explore other countries, cultures and school life, looking the different themes of Technology, Sustainability, Inclusion, Diversity, the Future of School. It has been great to see everyone gain confidence, try new things, be ambassadors of the Academy (and Cornwall), and ultimately demonstrate that Mounts Bay gives students opportunities to grow and develop into young adults who care about each other, their school, their locality and their future in a global community.
