Italian Exchange, Un Esperienza Fantastica!

This is the resounding verdict from all the students involved who had such a positive experience.

At Easter a large group of our Year 9 and 10 students excitedly embarked on their Italian exchange and 2 weeks later the Italian students and their teachers arrived at Gumley.

Itineraries were full and fast paced: In addition to participating in lessons, both groups of students made the most of exploring the historic and cultural sights, which for Gumley students included: Bologna, Fano, Urbino and Gradara and for the Italian students their landmarks ranged from: Hampton Court and the Science Museum to the London Eye and other central London attractions.

We would like to thank all the wonderful families who kindly hosted, both in Italy and here. Your generosity and support made this exchange not only possible but a great success too. The open mindedness of both groups of students created an easy transition and resulted in great friendships too.

Of course, a huge thank you to all Gumley and Istituto Comprensivo Pian del Bruscolo staff for their passion and commitment to developing students’ extended language opportunities.
