Konstanz Exchange - July 2017
Now in its 31st year, LEH and Hampton School were received enthusiastically by their exchange partners at the Ellenrieder Gymnasium, Konstanz.
Throughout the week the activities arranged by the school expanded cultural as well as linguistic awareness; we crossed the border to Switzerland whilst visiting the Rheinfall waterfall at Schaffhausen, appreciated the leisure facilities at the Bodenseetherme and the day trip to Stuttgart was thoroughly enjoyed by the whole group, where record sales of Ritter Sport Bars and Haribos were reported.
During our stay we were completely immersed in German family life and experienced Konstanz as insiders rather than as outsiders. The time spent with our hosts provided a valuable insight into German life which could not have been achieved in any other way. Families were both supportive and generous towards us and many strong friendships were established.
