St George’s Preparatory pupils ready jet off on overseas exchange

Seven Grade 7 pupils and a teacher from St George's Preparatory School in Port Elizabeth set off on Saturday to spend two weeks at Holmewood House School in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, United Kingdom.

The Holmewood House pupils visited the Prep in April this year for two weeks.

"The exchange programme is a highlight in the Grade 7 year and affords pupils a chance to experience schooling in a different country, giving them an opportunity to travel and learn the country's culture, as well as become ambassadors for South Africa," the school said.

The pupils will deliver a presentation about Port Elizabeth and South Africa during assembly at the school they are visiting.

"The teacher/pupil exchange programme with Holmewood House is now in its 11th year and the exchange pupils will be hosted by their exchange partners' families, with whom some of the St George's Prep pupils and parents have already become acquainted with via social media platforms and e-mail."
