Recently, a party of students from Villenave d’Ornon arrived to spend a week in Bridgend as part of the Student Exchange Programme. They attended school at Brynteg and Bryntirion and also visited places of cultural and historical interest in S. Wales including St. Fagan’s Museum of Welsh Life, Big Pit at Blaenavon and a very interesting tour of the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. These young people were kindly hosted by families through the schools and we are very grateful for the generosity and friendship shown by them. We hope these students will continue to keep in contact with each other in the future. Many thanks too, to the French departments of both schools, who along with Mrs Madeleine Walters (Secretary of Town Twinning) planned such a varied and successful programme for the visit.
The Bridgend committee is now keen to establish sporting links of under 25s to visit Villenave d’Ornon, so if your team or club is interested maybe you could contact us through our website.
