The Academy’s latest Comenius project has just gained two European awards for its work in the field of Bio-technology.  The two-year project which involved over 70 students from Germany, Turkey, Norway, Poland, Bulgaria and Italy as well as students from MBA, enabled the schools to study the pros and cons of genetically modified crops and visit some incredibly inspiring places such as the German museum of Science in Munich and an ultra-modern organic farm near Moss in Norway.  Miss Bazin, Director of Languages has also been asked to give a presentation on the project to the Prince’s Teaching Institute when she visits in July. James Savery said of his involvement “…it was great to be able to work with students from another country, it really gave me an insight into the way other students view the world and makes my learning of another language come to life”.


Meanwhile, having just welcomed 34 students from our Czech partner school, students from Berlin and Concarneau, we are now anticipating the visit of 16 Argentinian guests next week.  It looks like Mounts Bay really is the place to be!
