Lyon Exchange 2017

Following an extremely successful visit to St Columba’s College at the start of May we were eager to get to Lyon during the Half Term to stay with the students from Les Chartreux, our partner school. After an early start and a smooth journey we arrived to glorious weather and the boys were quickly reunited with their correspondants. The long weekend in France saw the boys taking part in many varied activities, from rafting and climbing to exploring Toulon, Marseille and the Alps. They worked very hard and made a very positive impression on the French families, who were impressed by their desire to understand what was going on and to improve their French. As well as spending some time in lessons at Les Chartreux – where the lessons are very different to those in England – we spent time discovering more about the old and new parts of France’s second city and the place where Andre Coindre founded the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. Very well done to all of the boys who took part this year.
