Hosting our German exchange students

With the autumn term well underway, we looked forward to hosting our German exchange students last week and showing them life in the UK.

The weekend was spent with families taking trips into London combining cultural visits with shopping excursions before immersing themselves in life at school on Monday.  Our exchange students ventured back into London during the week, taking a flight on the London Eye and participating in a workshop on Media and Fake News at Madame Tussauds.  They were encouraged to write their own fake news story in English and were delighted to have their photo taken with Usain Bolt!  Tuesday and Wednesday were spent with us at St Helen’s as our partners embraced school life and lessons in English. We were sorry to say goodbye to everyone on Friday morning and look forward to our return visit with Merchant Taylors’ School to Hamburg in October.
