St George’s School Edinburgh – GFS Exchange

07 May 2020

One of the most interesting parts of the exchange has been seeing the differences of the two schools. For example, St George’s calls teachers by their surname, while at GFS we refer to our teachers by their first name. It has also been very different going to an all-girls school rather than a co-ed school like GFS. We chose to participate in the exchange to expand our horizons and be able to emerge ourselves into a different society. Even when we leave Scotland, the exchange experience hasn’t finished.

We are looking forward to welcoming our hosts to Philadelphia for the month of April. We have been planning fun things to do when they arrive! We are sad to be leaving soon, but we are so grateful to have had this opportunity to explore Scotland!
