Aviano Saints- Marco Belli Exchange
Scritto da Anamaria Savianu - 3AL il 13 Aprile 2010.
Some of us started to exchange some e-mails with 14 American students. We continued for a while and then our teachers organized a one-day exchange. On Friday 12th at 8 o’clock a bus was waiting for us at the bus station. The trip wasn’t very long, we were all excited.
At 9 o’clock we arrived. Some of the American students were already waiting for us at the entrance, some others arrived a little bit later at the Italian class. We met our partners and everybody followed his/her one during the day. We followed their lessons, we ate together and visited the school.
The students can choose the classes that they want to follow ,so they aren’t organized in classes that last for five years.
There are many interesting activities (the school has got a soccer team, dance classes, etc..). Every time there is a match or a contest they take a lot of pictures and show slides on the big television in the entrance.
Every day there is also the “Morning News”. The day before, the students record a day-plan, and the morning after the entire school can listen to it. Two Italian girls tried to be journalists for a day and later they showed us the registration.
We also visited the gym, a very big one, with lots of trophies.
At lunch we all ate in the canteen, we already knew that the food isn’t always excellent, and the experience confirmed our suspicious! It was very funny, we were lots of people chatting and laughing, a moment of sharing. After our pizza and chocolate milk some more lessons were waiting for us.
Some of us were lucky, we went to dance courses and did other fun activities, but some others followed lessons like “Government of Trigonometry”, but we all agree when we say that we love the Aviano Saints High School!
