Languages pupils spent a week renewing friendships in Bad Segeberg on the return leg of their German exchange.
Trips to the Baltic coast, the Hamburg football stadium, Lübeck, local restaurants and an ice rink were among the activities enjoyed by the fifth years when they caught up again with pupils from Städtisches Gymnasium in Bad Segeberg.
Staying with their German friends gave pupils the chance to practise their language skills and discover German customs, while a warm welcome from officials at the town hall provided information on Bad Segeberg and its population.
There were a few tears on departure and pupils intend to keep in touch with many having plans for future visits.
Good friendships were first formed in October when the German pupils spent a week in Stockport staying with pupils’ families.
