French pupils get to sample life in Lisburn

Pupils from Lycee Paul Cezanne, Aix-en-Provence and their Friends' hosts during their stay in Northern Ireland.

A GROUP of 19 pupils from the Lycée Paul Cézanne in Aix-en-Provence swapped the more temperate climate of the South of France for a week of mixed weather in Lisburn when they visited Friends' School earlier this month.

The pupils were returning the visit they had had from Friends' pupils in October and were able to enjoy being reunited with the friends they had made.

Audrey Zémiro (née Jacob), a former pupil of Friends', is the contact in France and she was able to share some of her memories of her time at school during an assembly. 

The group then enjoyed a bit of friendly competition at the Odyssey Bowl before travelling to the North Coast the next day to see the beauty of the countryside.

The pupils also enjoyed an excursion to Cultra, during which pupils from both countries were able to participate in workshops on bread making and weaving.

The exchange finish came to a close with a farewell meal at Ed's. Once again, the exchange proved to be an enriching and worthwhile experience and everyone at the school is looking forward to their next visit to Aix in 2008.
