STUDENT EXCHANGE 2018: WILLSTÄTTER GYMNASIUM, NUREMBERG / IES "RAFAEL DIESTE", A CORUÑA


Our school has been working together with the "Willstätter Gymnasium" in Nuremberg, Germany, for eleven years now on the student exchange programme. Since then we've held nine exchanges and this course will see its tenth edition.
From 2007 to 2014, the exchanges have been carried out annually but since this last year, it's every two years. This year's exchange will take place between March and April. In March, the German students will be here and in April ours will go to Nuremberg.
Students will be staying with their guest families and will attend some class activities in each of the schools and will have visits and trips organized to interesting surrounding places.
You can link to fotos of previous years HERE.
We'll be updating.
