Student exchange between Saint Joseph - La Cordeille School and St Margaret’s Co-educational English Secondary and Primary School [fr]
Summer vacation might have not yet started, but five students from St Margaret Co-educational English Secondary and Primary School are already packing their bags. Indeed, these five exceptional pupils have been selected to participate in an exchange with sister school Saint-Joseph La Cordeille, situated in Toulon, France.
The exchange, which will last five months, ensures full immersion within a French environment. The students will be attending classes in a French high school, whilst simultaneously following their core courses from St Margaret via INTERNET.
This highly challenging program will allow the pupils to practice their French, immerse themselves in a new culture and adapt to a new educational system.
Meanwhile, their families will host five French students in Hong Kong who will attend St Margaret School – an opportunity to explore the buzzing city and to discover the Cantonese language and culture.
This exchange is the result of a close and active collaboration between St Margaret and Saint Joseph. In fact, twenty students from St Joseph have already paid a visit to Hong Kong early this April. Not only did they attend intensive Chinese classes, they also participated in a number of cultural activities, such as Cantonese cooking classes, arts and crafts workshops and local visits aroung Hong Kong.
