French Exchange 2017

It was with great anticipation that we set off for our annual exchange visit to the South of France.  We were met by our exchange partners in Toulouse in the South of France and started the adventure.  This year’s activities included a visit to the beautiful towns of Albi, Toulouse and the medieval town of Carcassonne.  We had gorgeous sunshine for our hike in the Pyrenees which saw us have our picnic in the stunning setting of Lac d’Oô.  Pupils also attended a morning of school and joined in with some lessons with the French students including English, maths, science and a very entertaining music lesson in which the boys demonstrated some new dance moves.  We finished the week with a few games of bowling and the French party.  This was a wonderful experience for the boys and they fully engaged in French life, trying out new foods and speaking the language.  Full details of how your son can participate in next year’s exchange will be given out soon and we hope to have an equally enjoyable time next year.

If you are in Year 8, 9 or 10 and you are interested in joining us next year, come and see your French teacher!
