The Exchange with Institution Saint Louis – Saumur in St. Stanislav’s Institution


We are happy to announce the spring exchange with 22 students accompanied by two teachers from Saumur, France. It will take place form 6th-9th April 2018, with water (l’eau) as the fil rouge of the meeting. Naturally, this would not be possible without visiting Lake Bled, The Ljubljanica river and some other points of interest related to water tourism. French students will be accommodated with the Slovene families.

The exchanges between both schools has now been going on successfully for more than 15 years. Being an active member of Institution Saint Louis is especially appreciated by The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium graduates who have the opportunity for a few-month stay at school, thus gaining a first-hand insight into French school environment.

As usual, the aim of the exchange is to discover local ways of life, language, culture and, last but not least, to hang out with French peers and promote friendship among nations. Daša Deželak Obrč and Barbara Cergolj both teachers of French at the DCG, are in charge of the exchange. /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
