The Nepean High School International Partnership Experience


 Nepean HS students enjoying the language, culture and cuisine of Spain

In 2011, Nepean High School signed a partnership with Instituto de Enseñanza Secundaria "Campo de San Alberto" from Noia, Galicia, in northern Spain, with the goal of fostering intercultural exchanges between students and teachers. For 15 days in March 2012, five Nepean HS students and their teachers, Ms. Coulombe and Ms. Pelletier, lived with their host families, and each Nepean student “shadowed” the Spanish students by attending classes and exploring the rich history and culture around the fishing community of 14,000. The Ottawa students were treated like VIPs and were totally immersed in the local culture that included speaking Spanish and sampling the local cuisine, the specialty being octopus. The Nepean students will have an opportunity to reunite and return the hospitality of their Galician hosts when their Spanish partnership school students visit Ottawa in May.
