Swiss exchange trip
Ten pupils from the OMS St Ursula in Brig, Wallis in Switzerland arrived to the mist and frost of an English winter afternoon last Thursday to meet up with their partner pupils. This trip to Eastbourne was the first part of the German language exchange programme that has existed since 2001.
Activities included shadowing partners into lessons, a tour of the town, a visit to the sights of London, shopping in Brighton, cookery, yoga and even a taste of traditional English cuisine – a curry evening!
The return leg takes place in two weeks and represents a fantastic, and rare, opportunity for Eastbourne College pupils to experience family and school life in this beautiful corner of the world, and to perfect those languauge skills whilst skiing, eating, or lying in the hot waters of a mountain spa resort!
