French Exchange success for St. Mary's pupils
Pupils from St. Mary’s College in Crosby recently jetted off to France on the first leg of a student exchange scheme.
17 pupils in Years 10-13, accompanied by two teachers, spent a week with their French counterparts in and around the town of Saint-Dié-des-Vosges in the beautiful region of Alsace in the north-east of the country, close to the German border.
As well as finding out about life in France and expanding language skills, the students took full advantage of the opportunity to explore the area.
The programme included visits to Strasbourg, the castle of Haut-Koenigsbourg and the picturesque local villages of Kaysersberg and Kintzheim, as well as a trip to Paris.
There were also visits to a number of museums, a secondary school in Strasbourg and even a local sweet factory.
St. Mary’s Head of French, Alex Stagogiannis. commented: “This exchange visit was an outstanding success for all concerned and the behaviour of our students was once again exemplary.
“They have returned from the trip with an invigorated sense of confidence in the language and their own abilities. We’re now looking forward to welcoming the French pupils to Crosby later this month.”
