Lucile and Maxence were due to leave this summer for our exchange with Trinity Lutheran college in Brisbane, Australia. Two months sharing the daily life of a family and a high school in Queensland.
With the pandemic, the project has stopped for this year.
But as with our other partners, and even with our closed borders, we continue to exchange.
With Mrs DAY, we organised a video between our high school students. The subject: a discussion on the impact of COVID 19, the impact on their school career, but also the tensions that arose following the death of George Floyd, and the demonstrations that followed.
It has been incredible to witness the resilience of our children and those around the world who have taken the disruption to their learning in their stride. They have not only found ways around COVID-19 restrictions but learnt a lot through this period that will become a significant part of history in the future. Our Exchange students are a great example – with no international Exchange trips possible this year, the students from our French sister school are still connecting with our Trinity Exchange students. Last night via ZOOM they chatted about coping in COVID isolation, how education and learning was impacted and about recent racial tensions and striking, and the response of our different countries to this. #WeAreTrinity
