Twenty French exchange students and two teachers are visiting Macon from the Vendée region in France this week. The students are all in 11th grade. Stratford has had a relationship with their school, Jean Vingt Trois, in France since 2010. These students stay with host families from Stratford and go to school with the students in their host family.

On Tuesday, the students toured downtown Macon with Dr. Bob Veto and Mr. Ed Grisamore. They went to the Woodruff House, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Coleman Hill, and City Hall. They ate a delicious American lunch at Ocmulgee Brew Pub.

On Wednesday, the students from France and a few students from Stratford went to Atlanta and visited the World of Coke, Krog City Market, and the MLK Museum. Later that night, they went to an Atlanta Hawks game.

They have been in Macon since Sunday, March 31 and will leave Sunday, April 7. When they leave Macon, they will fly to New York for three days .

Student Hailey Firlotte hosted a French exchange student named Allison.

“I really enjoy it because I get to practice my French, and I get to learn about the culture in France,” she said. “It’s a good learning experience.”
