On the 1st of May, the Year 10’s will embark on the overseas component of their exchange when they depart for Bordeaux, France. They will be living with a French student (counterpart) and their family for 4 weeks while in France and will attend school with them.  At the beginning of June, our year 10’s and their French counterpart will return to stay with our Year 10 families and attend school with us. This experience is aimed to meet the students growing need to look outwards into the world, expand their horizons, develop resilience, improve their French and foster the global awareness upon which the IB is based.
