Last night we joined with the Australian neighbours to host the boys’ teacher (the school Principal) for a barbecue dinner on the roof terrace. We let the Australian man the barbie, and they let us bring the pavlovas. The French guest brought the usual dinner table conversation – politics, the economy, the EU and the education sector. We were not at all intimidated about having brought the wine when he said that wine was one of his favourite things about the region (along with the great walking trails). The boys were not at all pressured by having their teacher to dinner. Nor he by being in their company socially. A good time was had by all and Tomos is now reinstated in the morning French classes. Result!
