Aquinas Grammar School welcomed a group of pupils and teachers from their French partner school in Lille this week to celebrate the completion of their recent joint project funded by the Lefèvre Trust at The British Council. A group of students from both schools took part in a bi-lingual research project on the shared industrial heritage of Belfast and Lille and schemes for regeneration. The project included a study of traditional industries such as shipbuilding, mining and linen, and visits included a tour of the Titanic quarter and a visit to a mining village in France. The project was made available online and the students also produced a DVD and a written publication of their findings.Lefèvre ProjectPictured with joint exchange students are (front) Rosie Murray, Aisha Yahyaoui and Roisin Tinneny (Aquinas), and (back) Maurane Broutin and Remi Grenv (French exchange students), with Brigitte Rambaud (French exchange teacher), Geraldine Gibson (Principal, Aquinas) and Sasha Lambon (Head of French, Aquinas).
