‘VIRTUAL’ GUEST ROOM
Guest Room with a twist
Last weekend was St John’s Beaumont first-ever virtual Guest Room, with some of our boarders inviting their UK friends virtually into their own homes.
This was a fantastic opportunity to get together and learn about our international students’ culture.
Each host family chose how they would like to show their house or took a guest to a local park. Some boys and families cooked a traditional meal together.
Here is a lovely account from the Seymour Family;
We all had a really wonderful time. Pedro’s family had arranged the delivery of lots of authentic Mexican ingredients, and we cooked and chatted and it really did feel like a family evening out, and brought back lots of lovely memories of Pedro’s company the weekend before lockdown and on the rugby pitch sidelines! I really do feel we have all made friends for life. Even our collie dogs had the opportunity to meet.
