Sheffield Residents make pen pals with students in FranceA school in France has written to all the Residents within April Park care home, in Derbyshire, sending them all Christmas cards.  

The Residents have since written back to each student of College Le Trion, in Samez, individually; telling them a bit about themselves. This will help the French students with their written English and the Residents will receive regular letters through the post. 

Everyone has enjoyed receiving the cards and responding on an individual basis to the initial questions asked.

Alison Cossey, Home Manager, remarked, “It’s exciting to be recognised internationally. When I received the inquiry, I was so pleased for the Residents!”
