Today we said a fond farewell to our Modern Foreign Language Assistants who have come to the end of their placement in the school. Aylin, Pierre and Agustin have been very much part of the languages team since their arrival in September. Pupils in the Sixth Form at Sir Thomas Rich's have enjoyed weekly one to one sessions with the assistants and boys in KS4 also benefitted from group sessions to improve their language skills in preparation for the GCSE examinations. At the end of the year, KS3 classes also had the exciting opportunity to spend time with Aylin, Pierre and Agustin.
Headmaster Matthew Morgan was the first to pass on his thanks to the assistants for their commitment and hard work this year. Aylin, Pierre and Agustin were then presented with gifts and cards as tokens of appreciation for the invaluable support they have given our pupils. This year's assistants have developed an excellent rapport with staff and pupils alike and the trio will be very much missed next year. We hope that it will be a case of au revoir and that they will visit us again someday.
Credit and thanks to Mrs. Ferguson for the lovely cake!
