St. Dominic High students off to Sweden to participate in European Union Platform on Life Long Learning program.
On Sunday October 3, 2010 five St. Dominic High students, and teachers, travelled to Byske, Sweden to participate in the third of four student exchange programs. The students will be returning to St. Maarten after an intense seven day program.
This ongoing two year program, partially financed by the European Union Platform on Life Long Learning, started in October 2009 and will conclude in May 2011. Students from Benevento (Italy), Augsburg (Germany), Byske (Sweden) and St. Maarten have researched and presented several topics including: fashion, communication and rights of the child. The aforementioned topics illustrated the changes the participating societies have under gone. The aim of the project is to bring awareness to the young people of the participating countries on the rapid and far reaching changes, as well as consequences, that have taken place in their respective countries. In other words “The way we were, the way we are.”
This time around the five St. Maarten students will be staying with Swedish host families, where they will be introduced to the life of a Swedish teenager. This introduction will include attending classes, going on field trips, surviving the Swedish cold and savoring Swedish delicacies. Our five ambassadors will be immersed in Swedish culture.
