GERMAN EXCHANGE PROGRAM: STUDENT SOCIAL DAY
As a part of the German Exchange Program taking place in 2017 students from Gleneagles Secondary College and Fountain Gate Secondary College were invited to attend a social day on Sunday 27th November 2016. Students attended the German Film Festival at the Palace Como Cinemas in South Yarra to watch the children’s movie Heidi and get to know one another and the participating teachers. The movie is based on a well-known Swiss children’s book which details events in the life of the young Heidi who goes to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps.
Students from both schools had a great morning getting to know one another whilst also practicing and developing their German language skills and learning about German and Swiss culture. They are all looking increasingly forward to the visit of their German Exchange partners at the end of Term 1 followed by their own visit to Germany in Term 3, 2017.
