German Exchange to Rheine

Sola Awosika in 9A sent us this report:

“After a 5.30am departure from school and a 10 hour coach journey with we arrived at the Kopernikus-Gymnasium School in Rheine, Germany. As we pulled up outside we began to feel scared, excited and nervous all together. However, our hosts were very welcoming and the nerves soon went as we set off to our exchanges houses.

We spent the next day at school. Their lessons and the school are completely different to ours. They finish their day at 1.20pm and are taught Latin. Also they do not wear a uniform and have coloured lockers.

The weekend was spent with our host families. Activities such as rock climbing to visiting the Netherlands, to shopping and volleyball games, to butterfly gardens and shopping. Our exchange families took us to a lot of activities!

On Monday, we went to Münster by coach, which was 40 minutes from school. It is a lovely town full of history about the saints and priests. The town was built very logically – the church is in the middle, so if you follow the direction of the church you will forever know you way. We had a tour guide who showed us the different architectural styles. And afterwards we went shopping. Münster was crammed with all sorts of shops; from Tommy Hilfiger to Pandora to TK Maxx to Levis. Münster hd a lot to offer us!

On Tuesday, we went by train to Köln (English = Cologne) with our exchange partners. When we heard about this we were ecstatic because we knew that this is one of the best places to go shopping in Germany! On arrival, we headed straight for Kölner Don (Cologne Cathedral). The cathedral’s architecture looks very gothic and eye-catching. What we did next was something that the teachers had hidden from us! We climbed 503 spiral steps – up and down. Thinking that there was going to be an elevator in a 700 year old building, we started our journey. 200 steps later our legs were aching and some of us stopped to rest but we kept going. 503 steps later, sweaty and tired we made it with the cold air hitting us with an almighty blast. Serval photos later we began to climb down to meet the rest our exchange group at the bottom.  Inside the cathedral, it was a place of peace and stillness and there were candles to light for a loved one.

The next part of the journey was my personal favourite – it was a visit to the Chocolate Lindt Museum! We ran in to the factory such was our excitement.  Inside we received free chocolate, saw how chocolate was made and bought chocolate. It was chocolate heaven!

Wednesday was the best day for two reasons; it was my birthday and we were going bowling.  We spent the first two lessons with our exchange partners and then went into town to take part in a rally, which is a bit like a treasure hunt. Our group got lost a few times but thanks to my friends phrase book, we were able to ask local people to point us in the right direction. Finally it was bowling time. This was the last full day we were going to spend with our exchange family and truly a remarkable day of fun.

We were up very early on our last day as we were going to spend another 10 hours travelling back to Maidstone. We were very sad to say goodbye and some students cried.

We want to thank Miss Cooper and Miss Robinson for taking us to Germany and making this such an unforgettable experience. We also want to thank our host families for making us so welcome.”

We look forward to continuing the friendship with Kopernikus-Gymnasium School which has been a partner school of Invicta’s for over 30 years.
