Herzlich Willkommen!

The Languages Department was delighted to welcome Karin Hitz from South Germany back to Pilton this week.. Karin first came to Pilton 17 years ago as a foreign language assistant. Since then she has been a teacher of English and Geography at a school in Feuchtwangen.. As part of the Erasmus+ Host a Teacher Programme, Karin has spent the week observing teachers in languages and geography and delivering cultural lessons to Year 8 students. Mrs Cassar's Year 9 class were also excited to receive letters from Karin's class in Germany and are busy writing their responses. Karin says:

"Thanks a lot to the MFL department for the very warm welcome. It was lovely to see how dedicated you are to teaching and to encouraging and supporting each and every student. I really enjoyed my short stay at Pilton."
