Welcome to our visitors from Reunion Island

Bienvenue (welcome)!

Yesterday we welcomed nine students and their two accompanying teachers from Reunion Island to Reynella East College. The group, from our partner school Lycée Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, are participating in an exchange with seven of our students who will go to the French speaking colony in the Term 3 holidays.

During their first day they expressed how they felt privileged to be able to connect to the school’s wi-fi network. They also do not have an everyday school uniform so were excited to wear their specially made overseas tour outfit. They were treated to a welcoming Australian lunch (sausage sizzle) while they bonded with their new friends about life in each other’s countries.

Once they settle in, they will join a range of mainstream and specialist classes, plus excursions to various places around Adelaide including a 2 night camp in Kangaroo Island with our student buddies.

Information about Reunion Island can be found here on their official tourism website.
