Global Exchange: Paris


Monday, 15th April 2019 - The day's sequence was:

Presentation in the St Ursule Primary School hall/chapel to the Grade 5 pupils who also presented information about Paris to the Brescia House School girls. The pupils from St Ursule are learning about hospitality and so they made a very good effort to speak to the girls in English.

Trip around the St Ursule Primary School with the Gr 5 pupils as guides followed by lunch in the canteen.

The girls walked a few blocks to the St Ursule High School - there they met the group from a school from Boston, Massachusetts - these girls are at St Ursule on a French exchange. This was followed by a presentation by a Muslim professor on the Islam viewpoint on the conservation of the earth and its people - pupils from St Ursule, Boston and Brescia House attended the presentation. Brescia House School then presented their school in Johannesburg to the pupils from St Ursule and Boston as well as a group of Grade 10 pupils from St Ursule.

Yesterday, the Brescia House girls experienced a most poignant day in Paris – they travelled via the Metro to visit the site of the Eiffel Tower and walked, together with 1000s of Parisians and tourists, past the devastating sight of Notre Dame following the fire that has led to the collapse of the central ceiling. A Mass for Holy Tuesday was celebrated at St Ursule and our girls played a vital role in the Mass. We are proud of our girls being such wonderful ambassadors for the school and wish them well as they continue their global exchange.
