Comenius is a European Union funded project to promote contact and cooperation between schools and to encourage us to think of ourselves as European. Henry Beaufort has been twinned with schools in Austria, Germany and Italy. The exchange visits have concentrated on healthy living; there have been two visits to Winchester and one each to Austria and Germany.

 

 Most recently Year 8 students went to Italy where they stayed with host families and enjoyed Italian life. They went on some amazing trips to castles, a cathedral and Trulli (Puglian round houses). They picked cherries from the trees and tasted olive oil in a beautiful grove of lemon trees. They went to a concert and enjoyed the music of the host school’s amazing orchestra.
