Our projects

French
Belgium is a bilingual country. All our students have to study French, our second official language. Within this context we also think it is important to keep in touch with people from Wallonia. In the course of time we have had several partnerships.
1916 – 2006 : College Notre-Dame de Bellevue in Dinant
Activities : exchange of letters and annual visits in the fourth form
2009 – today : Institut Saint-Michel in Neufchâteau
Activities : exchange of letters and annual exchange of students

The school has participated in several European projects. Up till now the language has always been English. However, in preparing the exchanges we have always tried to get the exchange students acquainted with a few basic sentences in the language of the hosting country.

Project World War I
We keep on working together with the Friesenschule from Leer and the Reepham College and High School from Reepham, both from the project ‘Understanding History: Our Gateway to the Future’ (2012-2014). Annually students from England, Germany and our school meet in Flanders to visit the reminiscences connected to WWI. In November representatives of the German school and our school go to Reepham to participate in the Remembrance Service on 11 November, to commemorate the horrors of WWI and other wars.

Letters from and to America
Since 2010 a lot of fifth formers have been involved in the exchange of letters with students of the Brandon Valley Middle School in South Dakota. Occasionally there have been some skype-meetings as well.
