Recently we went on an exchange to Vancouver and it was an amazing experience. After flying by ourselves we met our exchanges and their families which was slightly daunting but they were so welcoming and caring we settled in very quickly.
The school was very different to St Helen’s as it was a much smaller site and lessons were relaxed. All the Canadians were so friendly and eager to get to know us which made it that bit easier to feel at home. We both went to Stanley Park which was so beautiful and unique as there were incredible views of mountains, the city and the water.
Ella: One of my favourite parts of the experience was taking a weekend trip to whistler where we zip lined over the valleys and connected with the family in their cosy lodge.
Olivia: A highlight of my trip was when I went whale watching as it was so relaxing and different from anything in England.
It was great to experience because the city was so beautiful as you could drive to the mountains and sea. Overall it was one of the best experiences and would recommend it to anyone.
