Myton School welcomes German pupils for music exchange

Leamington Editorial 22nd Oct, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

MUSIC playing and language learning were on the curriculum as a Warwick school welcomed pupils from Germany.

For more than two decades pupils at Myton School have been taking part in a biennial exchange with youngsters at a music school in Leamington’s twin town of Brühl.

And having made the journey to Germany last year, it was time for Myton to host 33 pupils from the Kunst und Musikschule der Stadt Brühl.

The German students spent the weekend with their host families before observing lessons and taking part in a drama workshop at the Myton Road school.

The musically-minded students – all aged between 11 and 18 – then came together for a special joint concert to celebrate the exchange.

The cross-curricular and cross-cultural exchange is designed to promote languages and music among the two nations.

Now in it’s 22nd year, organiser Julie Edwards said it continued to go from strength to strength with new host families becoming part of the tradition every year adding this year’s exchange had been a “resounding success.”

Next year will see pupils make the trip across the channel to spend time with Brühl host families.
