Reken, 1st December 2015. Some schools do not only make a pupils‘ exchange possible for school classes, but also for individual pupils. The grammar school of the Mariannhiller Missionaries in Maria Veen, Reken, reports about an exchange of 13-year-old Leandra, who – with the help of her school and the Partnership Association Lette-Pierguer – spent three weeks with a host family in France. Leandra, visiting class 8, summarized her enthusiasm as follows: “I had a very nice and instructive stay, especially due to the extraordinarily hearty family. I was completely integrated into the school day as well as the family life and got to know country and language.” An individual exchange, however, is mostly more expensive than a class tour. A teacher from her school suggested Leandra for a travelling expenses scholarship of the Elena Bleß Foundation. “I was delighted by this support and my family and I were relieved,” says Leandra.
Support for work placements of pupils abroad can be applied for by parents or schools in Germany or other european countries. Applications can be sent at any time per application form or informally, e. g. per e-mail, to
At present, exchange Programmes for pupils are only supported at the cooperating schools. Here support is applied for by the school.
