We arrived back safely last night at midnight from the Augsburg exchange. Students stayed with host families and took part in 4 days’ work experience in a variety of placements, including schools, a fair trade shop, the tourist information office, a lawyer and an architect. They really enjoyed experiencing German culture at first hand and benefited hugely from the opportunity to practise their German, both in the workplace and with their partners.
The students who took part had a fabulous week and thoroughly enjoyed experiencing German life with a host family. The work experience placements included working in primary schools, with solicitors, tourist information centre, a dentist and a book shop. We managed to join this up with the MUN conference taking place in our partner school
Pictured are the 14 AGGS students with their German partners as part of our exchange with Maria Ward Gymnasium. The German students enjoyed wonderful hospitality and were delighted with the warm welcome extended to them by their hosts. They completed 4 days of work experience in a variety of fields and have thoroughly enjoyed their week with us. We are now looking forward to the return trip to Augsburg in February 2017.
