French Exchange: Les Français Débarquent!

French Exchange: Les Français Débarquent!

Now in its third year, the French Exchange ‘Cuvée 2018’, took place last week.

Our partners from the Collège Saint Joseph, in Nay in south west France arrived Tuesday last week with their teachers Mrs. Bourigault and Mrs. Osdoit, to start a week- long programme of total immersion in the English school system and culture. It allowed them to get a flavour of the English way of life staying with their host families and taking part in the day to day life of their hosts, including attending lessons and after school clubs at Caterham School. 

Last Wednesday, the French and English pupils enjoyed a fabulous trip to London where the Caterham pupils proved to be first class hosts for their partners: welcoming, friendly, attentive and engaged, the best combination for a successful exchange. Thank you to them for being such great ambassadors for Caterham School. Thank you to parents to for your support of this excellent initiative.

Our return visit to France will take us back to Nay during May half term. Having formed strong bonds with their partners, the French pupils can’t wait to help us discover their part of France and introduce their families and their school.

Vivement les vacances de Mai!
