Sancta Maria School, the Netherlands visits Victoria

On the 27th September a group of students and staff from Sancta Maria school visited the College to share educational experiences. The visitors presented Assembly and spent the day observing lessons and engaging with our school community. Hans Snoeks, teacher and trip leader summed up their experience:

“Thank you very much for your hospitality. We were astonished by Victoria College. We are so near one another in Europe and yet there is a vast difference between our educational systems. We felt a warm welcome at Victoria. Your ambassadors are really excellent. Our students found this day the most special day of our trip, because of the encouter with your students. This goal of our visit has thus been succesfull. We think that our students will look differently now on items like Brexit for example, now that they have met fellow students from Northern Ireland. The trip has made a big impression on our students. Many were astonished to discover, that Northern Ireland is a region where history plays an important role in people's lives so they remarked. The hospitality and friendliness of the people also made a great impression.”
