Year 11 German Language student, Charlotte Dashwood, is particularly looking forward to the Christmas holidays this year.
She’s been selected to join around 30 Australian VCE students for a ten-week trip to Germany sponsored by Scholarships for Australian-German Student Exchange (SAGSE).
Encouraged to apply for the scholarship by Kristina Dean, her German teacher, Charlotte thought: ‘well I’m not going at all if I don’t apply’.
It was a nail-biting process as she progressed through the interview and ‘culling’ stages of the selection.
She’s off on November 24, returning in early February and plans to make the most of this immersive experience in a language and culture that fascinates her.
Have a brilliant trip, Charlotte!
