In September, our branch visited our adopted school, Newton Abbot College, to present learning resources and awards for modern language students.
Jenny and Nicki presented the college's leader of modern languages, Hannah Brown, with three Kindle Fire tablets and a languages award cup and prize. This is part of the ongoing community partnership between the college and our travel agents, where we take responsibility to help with supplying needed equipment where possible.
Jenny, one of our travel consultants, said on the presentation: "It is fantastic that Hays Travel can support the local community. It is very rewarding to know that we are supporting such a worthwhile, yet difficult to master, area of the curriculum."
The Kindle tablets will be used as interactive language learning resources, giving students the opportunity to undertake tailored individual learning, while the languages cup and prize was awarded to an individual student with an outstanding level of attainment and effort in either French or Spanish at the college's first awards evening on Tuesday, 10 October.
Leader of modern languages, Hannah Brown, said: "We are thrilled to be in partnership with Hays Travel in Newton Abbot. Their generosity will help more of our students maximise their potential in the field of languages, as well as celebrate those who have shown aptitude and application in French or Spanish."
