Russian Students Visit

Russian exchange students from Arnewood School

Russian students from Moscow who are on an exchange visit to Arnewood School visited Setley Pond on Tuesday 17th June 2014. Club members demonstrated a selection of models and the students had a go at helming some of them! Mike Gough of Arnewood School said: “Firstly can I thank everyone who gave up their time to support my students from the Russian school ‘Moscow 1208’, they all had a great time and said how much they enjoyed themselves.

The Arnewood School, New Milton and Moscow School 1208 have been working in educational partnership for eight years. This has resulted in Students from each school visiting the other school, attending lessons and visiting local tourist attractions. This year with the support of Solent Radio Control Model Boat Club the students from Moscow, along with their teachers, spent a wonderful afternoon in the sunshine at Setley Pond learning how to control the radio controlled model boats. The students all said what a great time they had and have asked me to pass on their thanks, and… yes please can they do it again next year!

Once again a big thank you to everyone at the club for giving up their time.”
