Students from Newlands College (Wellington) were in France with their partner school Lycée Nucera (Nice) during ANZAC Day this year. Both schools have been exchanging knowledge around The Great War since the relationship began in 2013. It was now time for the young New Zealanders to experience ANZAC on French soil, in Antibes.
Senior French students from Newlands College are getting excited about their forthcoming trip to France in just 5 weeks. After spending a week in Paris, absorbing the culture and taking in the sights, they will then head to Nice, where they will spend 10 days in homestays and school. Some of our students are busy preparing speeches to deliver at ANZAC commemorations in Antibes on 25 April, which is a day our whole group will be attending.
Newlands College students only have 7 weeks to go until departing for France. We are looking forward to commemorating ANZAC Day in Antibes this year, and our students have been invited to speak at this event. A link to the day's events is here: http://www.anzac-antibes.com/
