Annie-Rose won a scholarship which covered the majority of the costs of this trip whilst in Year 10 so before she went she asked the pupils at Beardwood Bank what they would like to find out about. The answer was ‘school life’. Annie-Rose told the girls about school life in Germany and the tradition of the ‘Schultüte’: a cone filled with stationery and sweets given to German children on their first day at school.
