Group leader BBQ evening


Setting a new tradition this year, our annual group leader welcome evening was held right here in our school garden. Group leaders and staff enjoyed a mouth-watering BBQ cooked and served by the School owners Italo and Paul, who gave a family touch to a wonderful evening.

Most of our group leaders have become close friends and their glowing feedback about the evening is quite encouraging – “ better than any restaurant! ”.

A tradition destined to stay by the looks of it.

Mix and Mingle

As usual, the teachers looked on proudly as the students practised socialising in English.

Half of the school at a time made their way to the meeting room, where they were asked to approach each other and start a conversation. Although there were a lot of shy students at the beginning, after half an hour they were all chatting happily. What a great experience!
