Last week a party of Clyde Valley senior pupils joined their counterparts from four other North Lanarkshire secondary schools for the return visit to Italy as part of the annual Pistoia exchange programme.

Fifth year pupils Eilidh McMath, Lauren Tavendale, Bronwen Jardine, Glenn McBride, Lewis Wilson and Ricky Owens enjoyed the chance to visit the Sismondi and Pacinotti Institute in Pescia, Tuscany.

Having hosted their Italian ‘twins’ during their visit to Scotland in September, the Clyde Valley students completed a busy programme, giving them a real taste of life in the heart of one of the Italy’s most beautiful regions.
