School

School started from the second week of our programme. Our school,”Saint Exupery…..” Was located in the heart of the town Bourg Saint Maurice. We we’re welcomed by the principal who gave us an inspiring speech. Both the Indians and the French then gave presentations showcasing their culture.We got the opportunity to attend the Spanish, English and Art lesson which was quite a fun experience. Meeting and talking to so many school goers, of different ages, enlightened and surprised me by showing me a completely different perspective and thoughts people had on various issues.
A few of the students who lived in far off villages were provided with the dorm facility, which was a whole new experience On the last day of school, we all did a flash mob. Hundreds of children joined in and participated with full gusto.The cultural evening was organized in the town hall on the last day of school, where our French families were invited. This event showcased how beautiful and diverse our cultures are, through a series of dance, music, food and art!

    It has been a pleasure welcoming you guys at school! We loved your presence… although it was as intimidating for us as for all of you, we managed to get involved as much as we could, and it has been a wonderful experience! Our culture is so different and still, we managed to get on as if we always knew each other… thanks again for all that you guys made for us, starting with the royal welcoming and incredible trip! Everything was incredible, starting from food (I’ve made some coffe with my family and I never knew it was that way we made it), dances, culture, respect for the others and of course your way of having made us feel like home.
    Thanks again, hope I’ll get to see you soon!
