Background

 

This site was created as a part of the TEON project which was undertaken by a group of 14 Primary and Secondary schools in the Tonbridge area during the 1999-2000 academic year.

At Tonbridge Grammar School for Girls we wanted to try to develop a site which was both challenging and informative. We also wanted to work primarily with a school department which had not been involved with previous projects.

Under the broad title of a web site for Tonbridge it was difficult at first to decide what particular topic to choose. After prolonged consultation Mr. Anderson, Head of ICT and Mrs. Bullen, Head of Languages decided to work on a bilingual site for Le Puy on Velay which is the twin town of Tonbridge.

A year 9 French class, taught by Miss Montague were given the brief during early January and work began immediately, creating at first an English Language site, then where time allowed, a French language version.

The work was completed during five school weeks which included three 40 minutes lessons a week.
