From the 9th to the 15th of October, seven of our Czech partners and their teacher, Mr Bessko, came to visit us at Collège Mignet. Michal, Leona, Petra, Karolina, Adam, Tereza and Dominika stayed with their partners in families, came to school and visited Aix to prepare for the visit of the whole group next June.
We visited the main sites in Aix, including the new Conservatory of music. We even walked by the house where Martinu stayed whilst he was here with Charlotte.

We travelled down to Marseille by train to see where they caught the boat that took them to New York.
