Students from Ste. Genevieve High School and students from The Weald School in Billingshurst, West Sussex, United Kingdom, completed their year long exchange in October and it was a great success.  

Students from Ste. Genevieve traveled to The Weald in June. The trip included day trips to London, Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, and Brighton Beach. Students also spent time at The Weald School to experience how a day in a United Kingdom school compared to their own. In turn, students from the The Weald School arrived at Ste. Genevieve High School and spent time with various students and their families. UK students attended school and watched volleyball and football games, they even experienced a band festival, and cross country meets.  Students from the UK also took days trips to see the historic buildings in Ste. Genevieve, St. Louis, and Memphis.

This exchange forged relationships between families that will last a lifetime.
