On Thursday February 8 about twenty young Englishmen arrived at Perchy and stayed a few days at Nogent-le-Rodro.
Twenty-three students from Midhurst, an English town located near Portsmouth along with Nogent-le-Rotrou, discovered Rémi-Belleau High School on Friday February 9.
Arriving the day before, they attended some classes with twenty-five correspondents of the second European division, went to the castle of the Counts of Berchy, and were received at the town hall.

An exchange with French high school students
This is the second time the students have visited Perchy since 2016 when the partnership between Nogent High School and the English High School began.
After a Saturday with French families, they will visit the Palace of Versailles on Sunday and leave on Monday.
“This exchange is fantastic,” comments Olean, Olivia and Milla. “We talked a little bit with English on the networks,” says Olivia. I can't wait to go to London! »

A trip to England
From February 19th to 24th, it is actually French high school students who will be making the trip. Besides finding their correspondents' high school and going to London, they find Hampton Court and Winchester.
The division's high school students have the opportunity to travel to England every year.
“The goal is to open their minds, introduce them to another way of life and another culture.”
Christine Corbin (English Teacher)
The trip encourages teenagers to “practice English”.
