STUDENTS from the Czech Republic performed short dramas and a song for Adur District Council chairman Mike Mendoza.
They were coming to the end of their six-night visit to the Shoreham area with English Language Homestays, based at Shoreham Airport.
The group of 51 teenagers from the Gymnasium Hodonin school in Moravia were here for an English course and they showed what they had learned by creating three short sketches for Mr Mendoza and his wife, Jennifer.
They also performed a song at the Cecil Pashley Way base on Thursday, before Mr Mendoza presented each student with a certificate.
The youngsters had been staying with host families in the area, including Shoreham, Steyning and Lancing, for the week, travelling home on Saturday.
During their stay, the students were taken to Portsmouth, Beachy Head, Primark in Brighton, Hever Castle and gardens, Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, Stonehenge, Bath and London.
