Wallace High Year 14 students, Holly Mackin and Olivia Palmer, and Year 12 students, Rachel McCullagh and Anneliese Whiteside, recently took part in the UK German Connection scheme, affording them a life-changing opportunity to immerse themselves in German culture for two weeks.
Holly travelled to Berlin, Olivia was in Nauen, just outside Berlin, whilst Rachel and Anneliese travelled to Bavaria; Rachel to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Anneliese to Ortenburg.
A highlight for Holly was a German cookery class, whilst Olivia thoroughly enjoyed visiting all the historical monuments. Rachel loved learning German idioms and Anneliese put her dancing skills to the test.
WHS Linguists have a longstanding record of winning places in the prestigious UK scheme.
Assistant Head of Modern Languages, Kerrie Ferguson, was delighted that the A Level students gained so much from the experience,
“Holly, Olivia, Rachel and Anneliese were wonderful ambassadors for their school and city. They have returned with a fantastic insight into German culture and their language skills have improved dramatically. I am delighted that Wallace students so readily take the opportunity to immerse travel and broaden their horizons.”
