2023 French Exchange

May 18, 2023

A group of 21 students and teachers has recently returned from an exciting trip to Mâcon and Paris as part of the French Exchange.

The journey was an amazing, life-changing trip for the students, which provided incredible learning experiences. Students were able to practice their French language skills while out and about as well as with their host families, a task that required them to draw on logic, working memory and creativity to understand and to make themselves understood. The students also worked on their resilience, independence and problem-solving skills in a real-life environment.

The next exchange, scheduled to take place in 2025, will mark the 20th anniversary of this program and we look forward to marking this milestone in many special ways.
