Since 1997 Walker has had a flourishing exchange program with The Europaschule in Bornheim, near Bonn in Germany. As the name implies, the Europaschule has strong partnerships with schools throughout Europe and an international atmosphere prevails. For more information on the Europaschule, Bornheim, visit their website at www.europaschule-bornheim.de
The Walker/Bornheim exchange takes place every other year. Typically the German students spend a week to ten days staying with Walker students in the fall or early spring and attend school with their hosts. Our students visit Germany during our summer vacation. At this time the Europaschule is still in session and Walker students attend school with their hosts for one week. During this time they also make trips to Cologne, Bonn and in the Rheinland area. After one week staying with host families in Bornheim, we then spend a further week touring Germany , Switzerland and sometimes Austria. In the past our itinerary has included Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Freiburg, Munich, Salzburg, and we always spend a couple of days in the Swiss Alps. Students are accompanied by Bill Morgan and Ayren Selzer. The exchange is open to any student who has completed at least two years of German although preference will be given to students in their junior or senior year. Further information on the German exchange is available from Bill Morgan.
