A GROUP of students from Emmaboda in Sweden have been getting to know Scarborough during an educational visit.

The 27-strong group of 17 and 18 year olds, along with five teachers, are spending a week in the area and beyond.

They have visited Middlesbrough FC, an archaeological site in Hungate, York, and have also spent time at Plaxton and the Town Hall in Scarborough.

The students were also given a tour of Scarborough Sixth Form College and took part in some general studies lessons with tutor Patrick Argent.

Yesterday the group was at York University taking part in a study day.

Teacher Anna Hoerling, who has come over with the group, said: “We’ve really enjoyed our educational stay in Scarborough and our visits to York, Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay.

“It’s also nice to be treated to great weather!”

This is the first time the students have visited Scarborough, but the teachers made the trip two years ago to make contacts and find venues which would make for an interesting visit.

The students are all from Vilhelm Mobergsgymnasiet college, an upper secondary school which was named after well know Swedish author Vilhelm Moberg.

The trip has been organised by Club England.
