Lyon Exchange

Words cannot begin to explain the excitement and beauty of the Year 9 Lyon exchange that took place from December 3rd - 9th 2014.

 Words cannot begin to explain the excitement and beauty of the Year 9 Lyon exchange that took place from December 3rd - 9th 2014. The Year 9 students who took part were: Alina Lewis-Greenidge, Caitlin Steeghs, Zahra Eveleigh, Shanelle El-Nawar, Edie Chesters, Enriza Capistrano, Cornelius Vita, Immanuel Cooke and Jakub Kloss. They were magnificent ambassadors for our school community and I believe that they will continue to develop their friendships with their pen pals and host families for a long time to come. It was a real joy to watch international friendships develop and to see the students cultivate their language and cultural skills to such an extent during a week away.

We were all very sad to leave France on the Tuesday afternoon; but I am sure that there will be lots of emails and video conferencing between now and April 2015, when the French students visit us at Cardinal Wiseman and stay with our families. For a day by day account of what took place, please visit our ‘Year 9 Lyon exchange’ blog by clicking here. Thank you to Mr Kiely and the Governors for consenting to this exchange taking place. We look forward to developing our friendships and collaboration with Sainte-Marie School, Lyon in the future.
