International Exchange: Ben’s Reflections on his South Africa Experience

17 June 2024

In an exciting international educational exchange, Ben, one of our talented pupils, recently returned from a Round Square exchange at Stanford Lake College in South Africa. His time there was not only enriching but also filled with memorable experiences that he eagerly shared with the Stanford Lake College newspaper.

Ben’s article, which featured prominently in the school’s publication, detailed his journey and the multitude of experiences he encountered during his stay. The exchange programme, part of the Round Square network, offers pupils unique opportunities to immerse themselves in different cultures, enhance their educational journeys and develop leadership skills.

As we celebrate Ben’s successful exchange, his story serves as a testament to the value of global educational programmes. Such experiences not only enhance academic learning but also contribute to the development of well-rounded, culturally aware individuals ready to make a positive impact in the world.

We are now looking forward to welcoming Ben’s exchange partner in the coming months, where he will experience life at Windermere just like Ben did in South Africa. This upcoming visit promises to further strengthen the bonds of friendship and cultural understanding between our two schools, continuing the legacy of impactful exchanges within the Round Square network.
