As our project nears completion we would like to thank the New Zealand France Friendship Fund and the Shared Histories programme for the support they have given us to complete our project. It seems so long ago that we began the planning for such a momentous undertaking. It was not lost on us the young age of our students, most only 12 years old when they left NZ for 3 weeks in Europe without their parents.
Without the financial support of the NZFFF and Shared Histories this exchange would not have been possible. We would never have experienced living with a family in a vastly different culture, attending lessons in a different education system and getting to know such amazing people on the other side of the world.
