S2/3 French Exchange with Toulouse
Last year saw the beginning of what will hopefully be a long-lasting exchange programme with Toulouse. Accompanied by Mrs McDougall and Mrs Godley, a group of sixteen S3 pupils traveled to Toulouse where they met their exchange partners for the first time. The pupils had been exchanging letters and were paired up with a French pupil with similar interests.
Along with a few classes in the French school, the pupils took part in day-trips to the medieval city of Carcassonne and a visit to Airbus. In the evenings and at the weekends, they spent time with their partners’ families, and some of them did more sightseeing in and outside the town.
This was a great experience for our pupils, one they will always remember.
The 2011-12 Toulouse Exchange is well under way, with a group of 21 pupils ready to experience the ‘French way of life’.
