Dear Parents/Carers and Pupils
You will be aware that Ridgeway has a link with Hermann-Vöchting-Gymnasium (HVG) in Blomberg, Germany. We have recently hosted pupils from Germany for a week at our school as part of the cultural exchange programme that we are developing between both of our schools. A lot of you kindly hosted at least one German exchange pupil at your homes for a week at the start of February this year.
HVG and Ridgeway would like to further enhance this pupil exchange between the two schools that involves teachers, parents and pupils. We are therefore putting into place preparations for our return trip to Germany that will take place between Thursday 28th June and Thursday 5th July.
The language and cultural knowledge and skills pupils of both nationalities will experience will benefit them immediately and in later life.
At this point, we are looking to see how many pupils would be interested in this venture and would like to return with us to Germany.
Needless to say, there will be more details to follow. However, at this point, we would like to know how pupils would be interested in returning to Germany at the end of June to the beginning of July. Should you be interested, please complete the slip below and return to Mr Ayton or Mrs Trevethick.
