From Monday, 3 February to Friday, 7 February we were happy to welcome a class of secondary students from San Marino High School. This yearly exchange has become a tradition amongst our schools, and the students from San Marino were welcome to spend a week at VIS while being hosted by our generous families and experiencing Austria first hand. Throughout the week, the students from San Marino were able to get to know the city and the School.
The students were happy to be included in many different activities during the last school week, and to receive a warm welcome from the teachers, students, families and the people of Vienna. Something that Matilda and Alice highlighted was the fact that they very much enjoyed the freedom in creating during the art classes. Francesco felt proud about the Scottish Dance he learnt this week, while Sophia noted with surprise, that in Vienna one is able to reach any place easily, thanks to the well-connected public transportation. She also liked the fact that she and her classmates were introduced to new subjects, such as Design and new methods of learning, like the use of laptops meant to reduce the amount of paper.
Through this exchange, our community was once again able to increase the understanding of other cultures and different ways of learning. We thank all the students who travelled from San Marino to join VIS last week and the families from our community who were kind to host them.
Happy February Break!
