We welcomed six students from Lycée Albert Camus in Nimes with their teacher Patricia as part of our French exchange. The French students spent five busy days with their English partners and two days visiting London. At the weekend the group played Laser Quest in Eastbourne, baked cakes with their partners and spent time visiting the area with their hosts. Traditional Sunday lunch was one of the highlights!
This week they shadowed their partners in college and took part in a variety of lessons such as Art and Design, Physics and English. They were all impressed by the variety of subjects studied and the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the college. Several students expressed a wish to study here! On Monday they puzzled over the exhibitions in De la Warr Pavilion and were introduced to some seafood specialities: cockles and jellied eels at the Angry Whelk. Tuesday they took part in a bring and share lunch along with a quiz with the AS French students. Then they had a meal with their partners in Eastbourne. Wednesday saw the students take part in a bi-lingual debate about giving the right to vote to 16 year olds with A-level French students.
The College is returning in March 2019 to Nimes to spend a week with our French partners, visiting Avignon, Montpellier and the Camargue region, certain that new friendships have been forged.
