Charlotte Exchange programme – away leg!
Ten current Third Years, alongside Mrs Burnett and Mr Hall, spent most of the two-week half-term visiting our sister school – Charlotte Country Day – in North Carolina. The group were very excited to meet their exchange buddy, with whom they had been in touch over the past few months, and who will be visiting KES next term. In America, the group explored the city in the annual Scavenger Hunt, visited local art, history and the NASCAR museums, as well as visiting a nature centre in the mountains to see bears and coyotes. The students really enjoyed the opportunity to spend time in lessons and experience Halloween on an epic scale!
This Charlotte Exchange programme has been operating since 2004 and as well as offering students the opportunity to experience another culture, it allows students to pursue and complete a creative arts based academic study project.
