European Studies

The European Studies department has continued to flourish in Grosvenor since its inception in 2000.

The AS subject has grown in popularity and our work in this area led to an invitation in December 2003 to send three members of the class on an all-expenses paid trip to Germany for the weekend.  In January 2004 another ten members of the class won a European enlargement competition, one of three schools from the province.  The prize was an all-expenses paid trip to Strasbourg for four days.

Our involvement with the Comenius project also continued this year.  Our theme is the issue of ethnic minorities and integration. In March this year we hosted our partner schools from Norway, the Republic of Ireland,Germany, France and Denmark and held a seminar on the topic.  Speakers from the Indian, Chinese, Bahai and Jewish communities attended, and the above photograph shows some members of the class with our visitors.
