We have had some amazing days in America and have experienced so much. One of the highlights was a tour of both MIT and Harvard. Our students got a real feel of the universities and got to speak to students from both.
All our students were awarded medals in the closing ceremony of the World Scholar's Cup. They did especially well in the creative writing portion of the competition with a silver team award, as well as individual awards for two of them! Also, Thanh-Lan was chosen to hold the flag for France in the final ceremony.
The team also made it to New York City and had a brief tour of some of the key sights such as Times Square and Central Park. The students have been incredible throughout and I am so proud of them. Despite the cold weather, they have always rallied, even practising dance routines and playing charades to stay warm while waiting for transport. I couldn't have asked for better delegates and they have made this trip a real treat.
