Albyn pupils experience cultural exchange in Germany

Six S4-6 Albyn pupils enjoyed their trip to Markdorf, a charming town nestled on the shores of Lake Constance in Southern Germany.

Throughout their week-long stay in Germany, the students not only refined their German language skills but also gained valuable insights into the daily life of a German family. They had the opportunity to sample traditional German cuisine and immerse themselves in the vibrant local culture.

As part of their itinerary, Albyn pupils visited a local German school, allowing them to witness first-hand the differences and similarities in the educational system. Additionally, they hiked up the scenic Hochgrat mountain in Bavaria, soaking in breathtaking views along the way. Exploring the picturesque city of Konstanz, situated adjacent to the Swiss border, was yet another highlight of their visit.

To add to the excitement, our pupils concluded their trip with a fascinating tour of Pfahlbauten, the unique houses built on stilts in Lake Constance. A refreshing swim in the lake provided a perfect opportunity to cool off and relax. The students also attended a vibrant festival, took a dip in the Schloßsee, and enthusiastically participated in their partner’s activities, including orchestras and training sessions for sports like handball and volleyball.

Albyn pupils thoroughly enjoyed every moment of their German adventure, forging lasting friendships along the way. They are now looking forward to hosting their partners in Aberdeen next June.
