At the beginning of October one of our young people went on a trip to France to stay with a family and experience their everyday life. He spent lots of time playing with the three children tried lots of different food, even venturing out in the rain to buy freshly baked bread from the boulangerie!
He spent a day with a class from a French school visiting a zoological park, finding a way to communicate with the other young people and not allowing there to be a language barrier. He made some lovely friends and has been invited back for a three day hike with the class in June.
He coped amazingly well and showed great resilience in getting along with several different people, in the family and the class, who only spoke a small amount English.
