Student Placement, Falkirk

September 30 2014

As usual, my stay in Falkirk was amaxingly rewarding!   I worked for 3 weeks with the 16+ Activity Agreement for the Falkirk Council and it was very interesting.   I was able to meet and work with very nice young people and learn a lot from working with the youth workers.  I talked to the youngsters about France and French culture and I even organised a French week during which we watched 2 French movies, (The Artist and Untouchables) and we cooked Quiche Lorraine.

Megan, the person who hosted me, was so nice and so involved in everything she does that I could not have hoped for a better host.       

Finally, it was really exciting to be in Scotland during the Edinburgh Festivals and, of course, the running for the Referendum (particularly that I had the chance to meet the First Minister, Alex Salmond the day before I returned to France).   I feel like each time I go to Scotland (and Falkirk) is better than the previous one.   Thank you for welcoming me every Summer!

Bisous, Ana
