Exchange Students Trips
International Co-ordinator, Mr Schonken, has been organising some trips for the eighteen 14 and 15 year old students on exchange this term at Grodonstoun from their schools from all around the world. These trips have been organised by the school, to allow these young people from South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, Germany, USA, Canada and Colombia to spend some time sightseeing in Scotland.
They have enjoyed a typically dreich morning “Nessie Hunting”. A cruise from the Clansman Hotel took the group to Urquhart Castle. The tour guide was excellent and kept the group in good spirits with song and stories. These exchange students will leave our Scottish shores with fantastic stories and memories to last a life time.
More recently they have been on a local walk along the coastline and beaches above the school, taking in the spectacular sights of the Moray Firth and visiting the Watcher's Tower. They are also visiting Edinburgh where they will see all the tourist hotspots of the nation's capital including the Scottish Parliament building, Edinburgh Castle and the Scott Monument, to name just a few.
