Danish Students Visit

Last Sunday's community service was filled to the brim because we had the pleasure of introducing the Danish students from Rysensteen Gymnasium to our weekly visit at the Amsterdam Nursing Home. They came with great interest and spend the afternoon with our students and the residents learning a great deal. It was filled with laughter and all parties were very engaged in participating in the games and fun. The visit was followed by an American inspired lunch at Tom's Diner, and thereafter a tour of Harlem planned by Yaya, with personal stories from Rony and Yaya about growing up in Harlem.

On Tuesday both Danish and Project Rousseau students met up at the Global Learning Collaborative to discuss cultural differences. Not only did it help the Danish students with their Global Citizenship project, but it broadened their horizons about growing up in New York and the United States. Our students loved hanging out with them, and will look forward to their next visit!
