Student Ambassador Programme – can you help?
April 21, 2014
By Miss S. Grant
Could you be a host family for a young person as part of the People to People Student Ambassador Programme for two nights?

This project is through Enriching Cultural Experiences (ECE) and it will also help raise valuable funds for the school.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower believed that ordinary citizens of different nations, if able to communicate directly, would solve their differences and find a way to live in peace. In 1956, he put these beliefs into action and created the People to People Ambassador Program. Since 1963, Student Ambassador Programmes have taken thousands of young Americans around the world, staying with families to learn about the culture and lifestyle of the host country.

The Student Ambassadors return home with a greater sense of what it means to be a good neighbour and global citizen.

As a 'thank you' for hosting a group of students, ECE will make a donation to the school.

Families that host students will enjoy an enriching experience and also raise valuable funds for the School.

The programme will run on Tuesday 24th June 2014 for two nights and there will be approximately 45 American students who will need looking after. This experience can only go ahead if we have enough families to host all of the students so we need you to volunteer.

The students will have an itinerary which will include attending school for the two days with your child/children. If you are able to host one or even two students or would like to find out more, please contact:-
