FROM THE HEAD OF LANGUAGES, SUZANNE RICHARDS
Last year the school took part in an exchange programme with a prestigious school in Paris. The French school has run this program for many years with other schools in Sydney. Due to the popularity of the program, the numbers wishing to visit from Paris have increased and there is now an opportunity for more Waverley College students to participate.
Two Waverley students took part last year and had an amazing experience. This year we have decided to not only offer this opportunity to our French language students but also to any Year 10 student who is thinking about taking French Beginners in Year 11 or quite simply would like the experience of travelling to Europe and being immersed in another culture.
It is a reciprocal exchange: French students are hosted in Sydney from 18 June to 23 July and then our students go to France during the Christmas holidays for the same length of time. This means that the main cost is the airfare as the host family in each country covers the other costs: food, board, etc.
We are keen for this exchange to be an integral part of the French language program and therefore welcome any families interested in taking up this unique experience.
