Weekly Update 07/12/18

German Exchange

On Monday evening we said farewell to our group of visitors from Oberschule Ebersbach. They really enjoyed being a part of the school, participating in lessons as well as visiting a few of the local areas and a visit to Edinburgh.  Many thanks go to the parents and their KHS children who welcomed the German visitors into their homes and gave them a true sense of hospitality.  Thanks also to KHS staff who organised special lessons and those who supported the various trips.  After Christmas we will begin to organise our return visit.
