This week ten Aachen students from the Pius Gymnasium school visited and took up various work experience positions in and around Gloucester. Some found themselves working as teacher assistants in several junior and primary schools, a couple worked at local hotels getting a broad experience of hotel operations; architectural design offices provided worthwhile placements for two others and one gained a thorough and interesting insight into the graphics design and commercial printing industry at SevernPrint.
The work experience providers were well impressed with their charges, especially their extensive command of the spoken English language. The school wishes to thank those schools and businesses which undertook the German students' work experience provision and especially those people directly involved in their supervision.
