A Norfolk school will be saying 'Hola' to its Spanish friends next year as it celebrates its latest award.
Millfield Primary School in North Walsham has received the British Council's International Schools Award for the second consecutive year.
The award rewards schools with a notable global element in their curriculum, and Millfield has links to India, Spain, Japan and South Korea.
Robin Smith, who is the school's International co-ordinator, helps to bring diverse cultural opportunities into Millfield's curriculum.
And for the first time the school is taking part in a student and teacher exchange programme over the next two years funded through the Erasmus Project and will be welcoming children from a Spanish school.
