An exchange programme with Dennmark

Everything started 5 years ago, when a group of Danish headmasters on a tour around the Czech republic visited our school. They were trying to find a school, that would like to participate in an exchange programme. One month later, we recieved a letter from a school from Ringe, the small town on the island of Fynn. And it was the beginning…
The first year 20 children from the eight grade participated and they started to exchange letters. The first Danish group arrived on Easter Monday 2003. The pupils stayed in host families and they had an exciting programme (visit our school, international sport games, visit of Karlštejn castle, Terezín concentration camp, bowling club, glass factory, Koněprusy caves, boat trip,…). In the evenings they had a programme with their host families.
Then children from our school went to Dennmark to visit their Danish friends and they enjoyed the trip also a lot.
We find this kind of programme very useful. The children are not afraid of speaking English, because for both sides English is not their mother language and they have a possibility to experience life and culture in a small foreign city through family life. And one of the most important thing for our pupils – they do not have to go to school!

Friends from Denmark

Our friends from Denmark came to Prague on Easter Monday. They were here from 9th April to 14th April and lived in our families. We had a nice time – we visited centre of Prague, we were in bowling club, Zoo, climbing centre etc. After school program we could go with them to the cinema, bobsleigh course, to Petřín or we went shopping. We really enjoyed it, we are in contact with them and we are looking forward to visiting Denmark in June.

Échange franco – tchéque 2007

Au mois de mars, nous avons passé huit jours chez nos amis français à la Pacaudiére en France. Et notre programme? Découverte de la région Rhône – Alpes et de la vie quotidienne de ses habitants et aussi de nos contemporains.
Nous avons visité le centre régional Lyon, Clérmont Ferrand, Roanne et d´autres lieux intéressants de cette région. Nous avons eu l´occasion de comparer le style de vie en France et chez nous en République tchèque, traditions historiques, la cuisine française et tchèque, le systéme scolaire... Nous avons passé une semaine inoubliable avec nos amis français. Maintenat, nous attendons avec impatience l´arrivée de nos correspondants à Prague. Nous aimerions bien leur présenter notre capitale Prague et profondir notre amitié.
