From 17th to 24th March Year 10 students of German welcomed their exchange partners from Starnberg near München during our 35th German Exchange. The weekend was spent in families, with bowling, different types of sports and a first taste of life in Orpington. During the week, the Germans went to London, going up the London Eye and on a river cruise, as well as visiting the Tower of London, attending the Changing of the Guards Ceremony and having a tour of the Globe Theatre. Our visitors also spent one day at St. Olave´s, seeing with their own eyes that English students do indeed wear uniform and have whole-school assemblies. Both Germans and English attended a flashy and truly magical performance of Aladdin at the Prince Edward Theatre, followed by dinner at Nando´s. The week went far too quickly and we are already looking forward to visiting our partners in Starnberg during Activities Week 2.
