Annual German Exchange to Tübingen

Annual German Exchange to Tübingen

A group of students from Years 10-13 recently embarked on an exciting school trip to Germany, where they experienced a wonderful cultural exchange with their peers in Tübingen. The journey began with a warm welcome from their exchange partners, who hosted them throughout their stay.

The students immersed themselves in German culture by spending their first day attending classes at Keplar Gymnasium in Tübingen. This allowed them to practice their language skills and gain insight into the daily life of German students.

The group headed to Stuttgart to visit the renowned Mercedes-Benz Museum. They marvelled at the history and innovation of the iconic brand, exploring exhibits that showcased the evolution of the automobile industry. Afterwards, the students enjoyed free time in Stuttgart, where they experienced the vibrant atmosphere of the city.

Students embarked on a visit to the Stone Age Museum, where they participated in a hands-on workshop to create their own Stone Age axe. This unique experience provided a fascinating glimpse into the past and allowed them to engage with history in a tangible way.

Later in the trip, the students and their exchange partners went bowling together, fostering friendships and bonding over friendly competition and laughter. The adventure continued with a visit to Ritter Sport, a highlight of the trip, where the group attended a chocolate-making workshop. They learned about the process of crafting delicious chocolates and even had the chance to create their own personalized bars.

In addition to these enriching experiences, two Upper School students had the opportunity to engage in work experience placements at a dentist's office and a hospital. This hands-on exposure provided valuable insights into their potential career paths and allowed them to experience professional environments in Germany.

Throughout the trip, the students greatly improved their German language skills and gained a deeper appreciation for the country's rich culture and history. The experience not only broadened their horizons but also left them with lasting memories and friendships.
