FOREIGN EXCHANGE TRIPS
West Point School is proud to be in partnership with an international school in Shanghai. CM2 Students are introduced to Chinese language, calligraphy, traditions, and rituals. Students write to a ‘pen pal’ and at the end of the year and have the opportunity to meet with their friend in person on a week’s exchange program.
TRIPS ABROAD …
An enormous highlight of the school year is the CE1 Ski trip in Megève. This wonderful long lasting bonding opportunity for staff and students serves to solidify and strengthen the West Point experience in alignment with our values. Students emerge from their adventure with a new sense of independence, resilience, and pride.
England here we come! Each year the CE2 English trip reinforces our mission to nurture and nourish our students in the bilingual curriculum that we have developed over many years. Finding themselves totally immersed in British culture, students are captivated by cultural activities (visits to London, Oxford, etc.); sporting activities (archery, canoeing, orienteering … by qualified local British practitioners), and language acquisition.
This trip is as rewarding as it is unforgettable.
