Wavell & Shoei Summer Exchange

by Elizabeth Bonnet 11S

On Wednesday 26th July 2017, ten Year 10 students and 2 teachers participated in the University of Winchester’s Cultural Summer Exchange Programme 2017 with visiting students from Shoei High School in Tokyo. The 4 day trip consisted of 2 day trips and 2 classroom-based days.

The first day trip was a day out to the Harry Potter Studios where the students and teachers had a wonderful time exploring the sets and props used throughout the Harry Potter series as well as shopping for gifts in the gift shop.



The second day trip was to Bath and Stonehenge where the students looked round the Roman Baths and explored the legends behind the stone circle. It was also an opportunity to taste some great food and shop!


The 2 classroom based days consisted of a variety of topics that both schools could talk about. There were six topics overall including food and fashion. On the second day, the Shoei students delivered some excellent presentations about British culture including talks on castles and British music. We ended our trip with farewell pizza and many hugs.


Even though it rained thoroughly throughout the trip, we really enjoyed spending time with the Shoei students and staff and we were very sorry to leave.

We would like to thank Shoei High School for this amazing opportunity and the University of Winchester for organising and paying for our trip.
