In a bid to get students to learn about French culture, 14 Year 10 and Year 11 Suva Grammar School students left for New Caledonia yesterday.

The students went on an exchange trip the school had been having with the Canala College in New Caledonia.

School principal Waisake Vuliravatu said the students’ trip was fully funded by the New Caledonian government and the students would be on a week-long attachment at the college. “The trip is a chance for them to go on attachment and practise their French and also experience the French culture,” Mr Vuliravatu said.

Year 11 student Kasanita Tuicake, 15, said she was looking forward to the trip.

“I will be able to meet French students from there, mingle with them and also learn about their tradition and customs,” she said.

Akuila Tawakilai, 15, also a Year 11 student, said he looked forward to learning from French students in New Caledonia.

“I am looking forward to the trip because this will enable me to improve the way I speak French and also to learn about their lifestyle.”
