International Exchange

Lucy Arnold and Lizzie James in the Upper Fourth are currently attending The Study in Montréal as part of our International Exchange programme. Here are their impressions after their first few days: “Bonjour from Montréal! We’ve been having a wonderful stay in Canada so far. On Saturday 21st October we flew to Montréal with Air Canada. About 7 hours later, we landed and were met at the airport by our exchange partners, Julianna and Orlaith. At the weekend, we have done some sightseeing in and around Montréal and had lots of fun. On Monday the 23rd, it was our first day of school (while the rest of KEHS still has half term!), and we had a really good day - we even understood some of the French! Everyone is really nice at The Study and they use laptops in class provided for us by the school. We don't carry bags round, instead we just carry the books that we need. At school everyone is excited for Halloween, we are going to dress up during school, and we get to dress up a teacher for Halloween too!! We are having a wonderful stay in Montréal, and can’t wait until Julianna and Orlaith come back to Birmingham!”
