  15. 15. MFL and the B&E Challenge<br />Quiz night German Exchange pupils (K/S4) –<br />Confidence<br />The visit from our partner school usually ends with a football match (no prizes for guessing the outcome). Last year, our students organised a quiz night for the first evening of their trip. It was a great way for everyone to get to know each other.<br />
