Once again as in previous years we were delighted welcomed a group of students and staff from the Felix-Klein-Gymnasium in Göttingen, Germany, to Glenlola Collegiate School as part of our annual German Exchange Programme. This year is particularly significant for both schools as we are celebrating five years of partnership together.
Over the course of our week together, our German guests enjoyed a range of activities and experiences, including a sightseeing tour of Belfast, visits to Stormont Buildings and Titanic Belfast, and time spent here at Glenlola experiencing everyday school life in Northern Ireland. It was wonderful to see the friendships established back in December on our visit to Germany continue to flourish, as the whole group came together for a night of burgers and bowling at the SSE Arena and an excursion to the world famous Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge on our visit to the beautiful North Antrim Coast.
A huge “Danke schön!” to our pupils and their families for their excellent hosting duties and the warm welcome they extended to our German visitors.
