PUPILS from Romania have been visiting a Southsea school.

A group of 19 students spent time at St John’s College Junior School in Southsea.

The children, from Paradise School in Iasi, were joining classes as a way of improving their English and to experience English teaching styles.

The group experienced all subjects across the junior school including history and English.

Oana Albu, principal of Paradise School, said: ‘My colleagues and I think St John’s College is a special school.

‘We were delighted to find a school with such an open mind and open heart, and one which shares the same spirit as the Paradise School.

‘We’re impressed by the traditional education and all that the teachers are doing.

‘The school is well managed and organised, and the staff are very warm and welcoming.’

The school also led and assembly. They spent time visiting places of interest in Portsmouth, and they also had a day in London.
