Italian Exchange 2011
30 students and 3 members of staff went on the 18th Italian exchange to the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. In beautiful weather conditions a varied itinerary included days in Sacile, Vajont, Lake Barcis and Venice and a visit to the only mosaic school in northern Europe. Sixth form students did work experience in a local primary school where they learnt about the education system and the integration of immigrant children. Ed Parry in year 12, on his 3rd exchange, said, ‘I learnt a lot about Italian culture and my confidence in speaking has greatly improved’.
