WSFC students enjoy exchange trip to Munich
Students studying A Level German at Worcester Sixth Form College have recently taken part in the College's annual exchange trip to Munich. Each student was allocated a German host family, who they lived with for the whole trip. The students attended lessons at the Albert Einstein Gymnasium School (Einstein's former school!) and got to spend free time taking in the sights and culture in and around Munich and on various visits to the Chiemsee Lake and Salzburg.
When asked about the exchange, James, a current student, said: "I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the exchange because of how friendly all of the German students were. My German speaking and understanding skills have also improved considerably." Magda, also a current student, added: "It was so much fun, and have made some really good friends, plus the nightlife in Munich was great!"
Kerry Morris, teacher of German, said: "It's an invaluable experience which really helps to boost students' confidence in the language. It's a great way for the students to develop new friendships and gain a greater understanding of German culture."
So it seems as though as good time was had by all, and the College looks forward to welcoming the German students back to Worcester soon!
WSFC raises money for Sport Relief!
Congratulations to Worcester Sixth Form College's students and staff who raised a total of £572.15 for Sport Relief.
On Tuesday, 20th March, members of staff and students took to the running track to participate in a 'Charity Mile' to raise money, with two members of teaching staff, Dan Boatright and Rachel Alexander, managing to run a fantastic 6 miles for the cause!
Students also organised a cake sale later in the week, selling a delicious selection of cakes during break-time. These two events raised a combine total of £338.15.
Earlier in the month, a group of Business students chose to support Sport Relief when organising a charity event as part of their BTEC course. They managed to raise £117, which the College matched, bringing their total to £234!
The Sport Relief events which took place really showed a sense of the great community atmosphere that is present in College. Ruth Scotson, Assistant Principal, said: "Students and staff get involved in a very wide range of community projects and we are delighted to raise a good sum of money and have some fun as well!"
