In December, North Shore High School hosted 25 students from St. Malo, France, as part of a biennial exchange program. While visiting at North Shore, the students made excursions to New York City to see all of the major sights, enjoyed a Broadway show, and attended an American high school. The students also took the opportunity to visit several North Shore High School French classes, assisting our students in classroom discussions and with their studies. French teacher Eric Lepetit said, “It was a wonderful way for our students to be exposed to native French speakers.”
The students remained with host families during the course of their trip, making friendships that will continue to develop when students from North Shore High School go to St. Malo this Spring. While with their host families, the French students were exposed to a variety of social and family events but most of all, were introduced to life in the United States.
Mr. Lepetit concluded by saying, “The St. Malo students left us thoroughly delighted with their journey and looking forward to reciprocating this March in France.”
