A total of 13 Queen Elizabeth’s School students from Year 9 and 12 went to northern Germany where they were hosted by German families.
They took trips to the islands, visited the neighbouring towns and cities, saw a day in the life of their school, spoke German, had to drink water “mit Gas” and were generally excellently hosted by their German friends.
But that was back in April.
In June, the German students made the return trip to QE. The weather was incredible and they enjoyed trips to the beach, the moors, bike rides, Exeter and the Eden Project, as well as days in school.
The German students thoroughly enjoyed their stay with QE and some life-long friendships have been made. Well done QE students, you rose to the challenge with humour and resilience!
Miss Bevis, QE French and English teacher who ran the trip, said: “An especially big and heartfelt ‘thank you’ must go to the parents and to my excellent colleague Lara who put all that energy into hosting and making something this special and memorable work so well.”
