Partnering with Maine Endwell, our U-E French exchange students traveled to France, enjoying food, culture and all the sites the country has to offer.
They were hosted by familes in Arcachon where they also attended classes at St. Elme High School. They toured Ville d'HIver (the winter town), were hosted by the mayor of Arcachon at city hall, traveled to Bordeaux, the Basque region and Paris.
While there, they witnessed the tragic fire at Notre Dame. They were about a mile away when it happened so they were safe but were scheduled to tour the famed cathedral the following day. Depsite this, their trip was a great success and allowed them to experience life in France.
