German Exchange Partners Visit SHSG
Our extremely popular exchange with the Annette von Droste-Hülshoff Grammar School in Münster, an historic university town in north-west Germany. In the past many girls who have participated in the exchange have gone on to make private arrangements to revisit their partner for a second or third time and lasting friendships have been formed between families. Participation in an exchange visit enables students to not merely widen their linguistic horizons, but also to gain valuable insight into the lifestyle of others, which is particularly important for life in an increasingly multi-cultural and multi-lingual environment. In the past students have derived considerable benefit in social terms and have enjoyed themselves immensely. They will attend school for some of the time in both countries and a programme of excursions will be arranged in addition to any arrangements made by the host families.
