Children from Austria and Sweden have enjoyed a week with their counterparts from two Bradford primary schools.
Year five and six pupils at St Oswald’s Primary Academy and Heaton St Barnabas’ Primary School welcomed the youngsters and completed a busy week with a meal and disco at Bradford’s Dubrovnik Hotel.
On Tuesday they enjoyed a curry at The International in Bradford, on Wednesday they visited York and sampled fish and chips in Wetherby, before visits to Haworth, Saltaire and Leeds on Thursday.
Charlie Buckroyd, a teacher at St Oswald’s, praised the visiting children’s English, and added: “It has been fantastic. The children have interacted brilliantly.
“It was for our children to learn what it’s like over there, and for them to ask us questions.”
The visit was part of the Comenius project, aimed at educating young people about European culture, languages and values.
