Old Bridge German Exchange Alumni Reunite
Former participants of the German Exchange Program met for pizza and Germany trivia at the high school on January 6, 2023. Participants of the program reminisced about their experiences and enjoyed reconnecting with old friends. Consensus was to do this again, and more often!
The German Exchange Program, known as ‘Steinbridge Exchange’ was started in 2013. Our partner school, the Steinbart-Gymnasium (Steinbart + Old Bridge = Steinbridge) is located in Duisburg, Germany. Every year, students from Duisburg visit Old Bridge for 2 weeks in October. Conversely, OBHS students travel to Germany for 2 weeks in April. Students of German in grades 9 -12 are invited to participate in the exchange.
Frau Cotis and Frau Schmitz are planning on organizing more get-togethers in the future. The students helped to update a contact list for former participants so that more alumni can be contacted for future events. If you are a former program participant and would like to be contacted for future reunions, please email Frau Cotis (email@example.com) or Frau Schmitz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
