In connection with other North Lanarkshire schools, Our Lady’s pupils hosted a group of Italian students again as part of our annual exchange programme. The Italians come from the beautiful town of Pescia in Tuscany. The OLHS group chose to go bowling as a fun way to get to know each other.
A special lunch was laid on to welcome our guests in OLHS on Wednesday, where our Italian visitors also took part in classes, shadowing their Scottish hosts. A fabulous ceilidh was held in the evening, with everybody getting involved with the dancing.
The Italians and Scots took separate paths for most of Thursday, but met up again in small groups after school for various activities including informal tours around Glasgow, going out to dinner and even visiting Celtic Park.
Finally on Friday night, OLHS hosted a disco, which was agreed to be a fantastic end to the week, before tearful farewells took our guests back home.
