German Exchange

This week, 11 Rossall students travelled to Rheine, Germany to enjoy a week-long stay with a host family. The week started with planes, trains and automobiles, as the students had quite a journey before they finally arrived in Rheine on Tuesday evening.

Lessons began on Wednesday and our students were able to try out their German first hand. On Thursday, the students enjoyed a soggy trip to Münster, where it, unfortunately, rained for the duration of their visit! However, this did not stop them from visiting the Cathedral, numerous cafés, and shops!

On Friday the students were back in lessons before going bowling in the evening and enjoying an exotic meal at McDonald’s. The weekend was spent doing more shopping, playing football, dancing, and enjoying the company of their host families. On Monday, the students took a trip to Bremen Universum Science Museum.

They absolutely loved the earthquake room which replicates what it is like to be in an earthquake. Finally, it was time to say Auf Wiedersehen, and the students started their journey back to England.

Thank you to Mr. Butcher, Miss Hoban, the host families and our partner school in Rheine for giving our students the most wonderful week.
