Following successful visit of year 8 French Students, Guernsey students invited to stay in Combourg, France

“Au revoir mes amis”

Guernsey recently played host to 120 French Students from College Jean Bosco, St Macaire en Mauges in the Loire Region of France. The students came for 2 nights and 3 days to discover Guernsey’s rich history and culture.

The Year 8 students stayed with host families enjoying home cooked meals and practicing their conversational English. Some of the students were taken to the beach and other places on the island to explore and have some free time with their families.
