STUDENTS at a school in Brierfield have been learning about the American way of life this week.

The youngsters at Mansfield High School, in Elland Road, have been working with a team of visitors from Chicago who had come to East Lancashire to join the PAIS Chistian Youth Team at Burnley Pentecostal Church.

The group has been helping to run religious education classes at Mansfield and students have been given an opportunity to find out about the way of life in America.
