Collegiate 4th Graders Chat with Recent Arrivals to Richmond

As part of their study of immigration in social studies, Collegiate’s entire 4th Grade today chatted with students from Bon Air Elementary School via Google Hangouts. The Bon Air students, recent arrivals from Puerto Rico and Latin and South America, offered a child-to-child perspective of their experiences.
“The connection is particularly meaningful for our students to hear from these 3rd and 5th Graders,” said Assistant Lower School Head Laura Fields. “And the students are practicing English, so this encounter benefits them as well.”
