Der Jahrgang Füchse machte sich, wie bereits alle anderen neunten Jahrgänge zuvor, Ende November 2019 mit knapp 60 Schülerinnen und Schülern auf den Weg ins nordenglische York. Dort besuchten die Schülerinnen und Schüler täglich einen Sprachkurs am Melton College und wohnten in Gastfamilien, um ihre Englischkenntnisse zu vertiefen und einen Einblick in das britische Alltagsleben zu erhalten. Eingeteilt in die Kleingruppen „Sporty York“, „Spooky York“, „Medieval York“ und „Tasty York“ erkundeten die Schülerinnen und Schüler Teilaspekte der historischen Stadt und tauchten so in die Geschichte und Kultur der britischen Insel ein.
Hier ein paar Fotos unserer diesjährigen „York-Experience“:

Thursday 21st: On Thursday some of us made scones with one of the teachers from Melton College. It was very tasty. After that we went to the Chocolate factory. Meanwhile, the other groups went to the Dungeon, St Paul’s or went for a Ghost Walk in the evening.
Friday 22nd: On Friday we all went to the Melton College for the last time. After the school lessons at 12.30pm we had lunch and some free time until 18:00pm. We all met at the college at six o’clock to play a game together (“Pub Quiz”). After that we all went home and spent the last evening at our host family’s house.
Saturday 23rd: On Saturday we left our host family and met at the bus. We said goodbye to our hosts and drove to a small coast town called Whitby where we had some time to get an idea of the city. Later, we drove to the harborr and got on the ferry back to Rotterdam.
