Students from year 9, 10 and 11 spent four exciting days in Germany experiencing the Munich Christmas markets and visiting our partner school in Planegg. The girls spent a morning in the school meeting their pen friends and going to a variety of lessons including Music, Science, Sport and English. The students could get to know each other better with a range of activities over the weekend including Bowling, exploring a Museum and Markets and a visit up the Olympic tower with panoramic views over Munich to the mountains beyond.
The German teachers were very impressed with our group calling them ‘perfect’. We look forward to welcoming the German students and teachers back next year to continue our close links with our twin town Planegg.

‘Being able to have the opportunity to visit our penfriends in Planegg is amazing and all the students are very welcoming. I have enjoyed going to my pen friends lessons and I think they are very different. I found it interesting that they start at 8am and finish at 1pm and that they fit so much learning in to 45 minutes. Over all everyone is so kind and enjoyable to be around and we have all enjoyed our stay a lot.’
