In spring, 2015, Solebury School students will have the opportunity to participate in an exchange with students from Helmuth Hubener School (Stadtteilschule Helmuth Hubener) in Hamburg, Germany. Solebury students will travel to Hamburg and stay with German families during March spring break and/or host a German student in April. The 2013 spring exchange was a great experience and we are excited to offer this opportunity again!
While in Hamburg, Solebury School students will attend classes with their German exchange students, visit Berlin, Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial, and go on a boat tour and walking tour of Hamburg. Solebury School will travel to Hamburg on Friday, March 13 and return on Sunday, March 22. Dates are not yet specified for the April exchange.
This exchange will be led by Nicole Mount, Sarah Sargent, and Eric Soroka. Over the summer, we will send applications for the exchange and hold an informational session in the fall. Preference may be given to juniors and seniors, though all students are encouraged to apply. No German language experience is necessary to participate in this exchange.
If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Nicole Mount, Director of Global Education Programs.
