Germany Exchange 2016
A Unique Opportunity to Explore Global Citizenship
Public schools provide meaningful and engaging experiences that foster personal, social and academic growth and prepare students for a bright future. Today, more than ever before, schools must also assist students to appreciate global citizenship and an internal perspective in our increasingly connected world. Cultural enrichment experiences help to develop "citizens of the world," and the Louis Riel School Division's Germany Cultural Enrichment Program supports this goal.
Fifteen students from across Louis Riel School Division will be travelling to Hamburg, Germany on April 6, 2016 for a three week exchange program experience. In addition to learning about the German culture, the students will have an opportunity to develop an appreciation for …
- International culture, traditions, languages and lifestyles
- International interdependence and cooperation
- The importance of diplomacy, its processes, protocols and benefits
- Canada's role in the global community
- Canada's cultural diversity and heritage
Excursions to local sites, businesses, nearby communities and cultural attractions will complement the student's experience – students can learn about the important role that Hamburg has played as one of the largest ports in Europe.
We still have a few openings available to students in Grades 10 or 11. If you are interested, please contact your school administration for more information.
