We are delighted to inform you that plans are underway to organise our annual French exchange with le College des Roches Durtal , Maine -et – Loire, France.

We plan to travel to France on Sunday the 18th of March for approximately 5-6 nights depending on the cost of flights. Our students will stay with French families and will go to school with their exchange partner each morning. Trips and activities will be organised for the afternoon and some evenings. We plan to keep the cost of the trip as low as and possible and envisage that the average cost will be in the region of 300 euro per student. This price will include flights, transfers, trips and meals will be provided by the host families and school.
The return leg of the programme will take place on the 16th to the 23rd of April. We will welcome College des Roches to our school and the students will stay with your family.

The exchange is open to Transition Year, 2nd and 1st year students who are studying French. It is a great opportunity for your son/daughter to experience life in France, spend some time with a French family, attend a French school and to put into practice the French language they are learning in the classroom.

We hope to book the flights at the end of January and presently the cost of the flights is working out at about 200 euro. If your son/daughter is interested in going please fill in the permission slip attached and return it on or before Friday, the 12th of January to your French teacher. Will be in touch regarding payment when we are ready to book the flights. The remainder of cost will be payable before departure.
