The international partnership between La Martiniere Girls School and St. Olave’s continues to develop as we welcomed eight further students to the school in October. Once again students and parents of the school welcomed the girls into their homes with open arms for a full cultural exchange. The students split their time between school and London, they visited museum row, watched a musical in the West End and soaked up all the sights London has to offer.
During their time in school the students observed lessons they took at home in Kolkata, participated in the clubs and societies that were running and led their own Indian dance lesson to our group of International Ambassadors. Emotions ran high as the students departed at the end of their week-long trip, a firm indicator that life-long friendships were formed over the course of the visit, and we look forward to returning the visit in the near future in what should be an eye-opening visit for some of our students.
