Student Work Placements

July 12 2016

Two students Denise and Saskia, from Beruflicheschule in the Odenwald were collected from the airport by members of the Odenwald Association and settled into their accommodation ready for their 3 weeks' work experience placements at Municipal Buildings, the Kelpies and Falkirk Library.  Before starting work they were taken on a tour of the Trossachs by Christine and Joe. What a great start to their visit!

On Sunday, Walter and Anne  took the  two visiting German students  out  to St. Andrews  for the  day, making an unscheduled stop at  Falkland due  to a diversion.  Despite  the  intermittent  rain, we  had a  good time, looking at  some  of the  older parts  of the university, the  castle, the  abbey and the  harbour, and one of the  cafes  that  Wills  and Kate  used to frequent. We  finished up on the ‘Chariots  of Fire’ beach (the  rain was  pouring by this  time) paddling in the  sea and collecting shells.
