Throughout the duration of the trip, the students formed strong friendships with their peers from KSA. “It was great to see our students working and socialising with their Korean buddies,” said Mr Curnow. “From the initial shyness and lack of common interests at the start of the trip, friendships were formed by the end, resulting in hugs, tears and gifts when the time came to leave.”

A number of KSA students will visit CSIA this year through the ongoing exchange program.
