Form 7 students of Spanish welcome Guest Speaker Lola Paniagua
Form 7 A-level pupils of Spanish were treated to a visit from Lola Paniagua, author of Mi Querido Pueblo, Bohonal de Ibor (My Beloved Village, Bohonal de Ibor). A personal memoir, Lola recounts stories and anecdotes of what it was like growing up in a small village in the region of Extremadura during the Franco dictatorship.
Reading extracts from her book, the pupils were invited on a moving and beautiful journey through rural village life and were each presented with a copy for their own keeping.
Head of Spanish, Cameron Pauls said, “We are very grateful to Lola for finding the time to visit Oakham School and for sharing her life story with us”.
