Foreign Exchange Exchange Visits - 1955 to 1963
Exchange visits were arranged with schools whereby boys from F.G.S. and pupils from overseas lived in each others houses to improve their language skills and learn something of each others cultures. Fortunately photographs and diaries have survived and a selection are available below. (Click image to see more.)
Other trips took boys to Italy (1961), Montreux and Spain (1962), France (1963), Switzerland (1963), Italy (1963) and Scandinavia (1963) and these are noted in school magazines. (Alpha.)
