The first leg of the Belgian exchange took place in November as we hosted eight students and two staff here at Wyke. They arrived exhausted after a disturbed night on the ferry but were allowed little respite as our students had planned plenty of activities for them in the evenings! Impressed by our college buildings, the students particularly enjoyed the canteen area and were treated to a meal on their first day in college.
They also took part in French lessons, where they paired up with our students and produced bi-lingual work on the environment and a critical review of a film. During their visit they also went to York and followed a paintings treasure hunt around Beverley.Read more
