We are going to Wiesbaden!
After our first GLS Ottawa student exchange to Germany (Berlin) last year, we received a lot of positive feedback from parents and students in our community and many of you asked us about the next opportunity for children at GLS to participate.
We are pleased to announce that we will go to Wiesbaden for our second GLS exchange program where the Elly-Heuss-Gymnasium will host us. As last time, the students will stay with a guest family and will participate fully in the classroom and the regular school schedule. In addition, a GLS teacher and parent volunteers who are accompanying the group to Germany, will organize activities and a cultural program in and around Wiesbaden. This time, we are also planning on hosting the German students from Wiesbaden in Ottawa at the end of June.
The exchange program will be 14 days long and the dates will cover Ontario’s March Break: March 11th-25th, 2017.
We are inviting GLS students in grade 7, 8 and 9 (age 12-15) to apply for the program. We will only be able to accommodate 14 students.
The cost of the program will be $1,800. The price will include the return flight to Frankfurt, train tickets to Wiesbaden, all fees for activities, bus tours, etc. as well as snacks and meals outside the guest family.
