Ten of our students and 13 students from Lycee Sud Medoc, along with their teacher escorts, participated in a student exchange programme as a part of collaboration between the two schools.
Accordingly, the delegation from SBA went to the Lycee Sud Medoc School, a school situated in St. Aubin de Medoc, located in south western France near Bordeaux, from the 11th to the 28th of December, 2016. The students attended Math workshops and an Economics lecture, which gave our students a glimpse of the French education system.
