Bridgwater's 2010 international link programme for 2010 has kicked off with 3 back to back visits to the Czech capital Prague. Groups from Bridgwater College and Richard Huish College Taunton have all been involved in Residentials organised by Bridgwater International.
In February the Bridgwater College Sociology Students visited Arabska Gymnasium and the Hostivar Christian Gymnasium (very keen to have a school to school link if anyones interested) plus visited the Terezin Nazi Transportation camp, the Staropramen brewery and also watched the Slavia v Liberec ice hockey game.
By early March the Bridgwater College Media study group had also visited the city and included a tour of the Barrandov film studios and the Czech TV station on their itenary along with a link up with the FAMU college of film studies organised by Jakub Drocar of 'Punk Films'
A week later the Richard Huish Health & Social care students were in Prague and dropping in on kindergartens and Zakladni schools in Prague before heading down to Ceske Budejovice for some maternity hospital and special needs school visits plus a link up with the Cesko-Anglicky Gymnasium.
