Making music in Créteil

October 29 2015

Two Youth Music Tutors from Falkirk, Susanne Bell and Gareth Lloyd visited schools in Créteil to look at ways with our twinning partners of promoting language in schools through music.   It was also a great opportunity to promote Scottish music and play alongside the popular Falkirk band, The Tonkerers at the annual open air event, Parcs et Jardin.   Some of the more adventurous onlookers even joined in the Ceilidh dancing!  The visit ended with a glittering evening in Paris and some special memories to take back to Falkirk with future joint working and links assured.

A group of students accompanied by their tutor from the English Class in Créteil enjoyed a visit to Falkirk to develop their language skills, learn about our culture and renew friendships.  They packed a lot into their sightseeing visits including;  The Kelpies, Culross, South Queensferry and Linlithgow Palace.  Despite weather for all seasons, they all enjoyed their visit and improved their confidence in speaking English, with a Scottish accent of course!
