From Tuesday 2nd May – Thursday 4th May, UVHS had the pleasure of welcoming 23 students and 3 teachers from a secondary school near Salzburg in Austria.
The visiting students were assigned a buddy from Year 10. The students spent time getting to know our school and sampling our lessons.
The visiting students noted how different our school is from their own: in Austria they don’t wear school uniform and school starts at 7:50 a.m. and finishes at 1:30 p.m.
Our visitors enjoyed a tour of Ulverston with Miss Beardsley, a trip to Bowness with Miss Cockayne and a visit to Hadrian’s Wall with Mr Hardwick. And the weather was beautiful on all the three days! (How unlike England!)
Our students made excellent buddies and made new, lasting friendships. This is the start of an exciting international partnership between our two schools and we hope to make our own visit to Austria next year.
School Angel works with lots of big shopping brands in the UK which have agreed to donate a portion of the profit, they normally make on your shopping if you use the School Angel website to visit their shop. You are guaranteed to only pay exactly the same price, for whatever you buy, but UVHS will also receive a donation.
