Eugenia's "Writing for an Audience" part of her English exam included a task: "Why your child should spend a year living and studying abroad". What a wonderful piece of writing, well done Eugenia! ''Waking up to the wonderful sound of waves crashing on the beach, going sky diving over snowy mountains, and preparing a picnic under the Eiffel Tower are only a few of the many incredible opportunities your child will have while studying abroad. This year abroad will open their eyes to a world of new possibilities and new beginnings. They will not only have the chance to explore the world, but also to explore themselves. They will discover a side of themselves they didn't know existed - one that is hungry for knowledge and learning. A side of themselves that realizes they actually do enjoy going to museums, because after visiting the Louvre in Paris, they've found a love for Impressionist paintings. Simple tasks like learning to move around by themselves on the Metro or learning to order their food in another language will increase your child's independence and maturity. This year abroad will be full of new experiences. Your children will become global citizens: ones with an interest in different cultures and foods, knowledge about different religions and traditions, and with many new friends scattered all across the globe. Some of their best memories will be made during the year - a year they'll undoubtedly cherish forever and be truly grateful for.''
I wasn't sure what to expect when I came to Surval, but by the time I arrived the view simply blew me away. Being a Surval student has given me the chance to learn French with great teachers, and to create strong friendships that I am sure will continue after I leave the school. I have had so much fun with the different activities and enjoy the skiing.
Thank you Mrs Penney, all the teachers and specially the staff, for everything they do for all of us. It has been an honour to be a student here at Surval. Thank you for giving us so many opportunities, and I look forward to next year.
I’m very happy to be part of Surval. I love all my teachers, and the opportunities that we have to learn and to make good friends. I can’t wait for the next school year!
The memories and friendships I have made at Surval I know will last forever.
Surval has honestly been one of the greatest experiences in my life.
I have had an amazing time at Surval. I think you are all amazing, and you make every day special and push us to do all sorts of things, and in the end we always have an amazing time. During my time at Surval I have met new and amazing people. I’ve learned a lot in my classes and enjoyed all activities and trips. That is why I wanted to thank you all at Surval.
Thank you so much for the best time of my life! I wish you the best for the years to come and I hope you won’t forget me, because I certainly won’t forget Surval.
