Danish students visit high school
Orange City Schools wished a “velkommen” to their two dozen guests visiting Orange High School from Denmark’s Herning Gymnasium earlier this month. Students and accompanying teachers visited as part of the schools’ International Education Exchange Program, now in its eighth year.
The Danish guests, who spent time at Cedar Point and Patterson Fruit Farm with their host families when they arrived the weekend of Oct. 4, were welcomed in OHS fashion with a parade through the halls by the drum line, Lionettes and cheerleaders and performances by the OHS choir and orchestra members. Throughout the week, the Danish students visited Ohio’s Amish Country, the Westside Market, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and All City Candy.
The Danish and OHS students also spent time together as they collaborated in cultural, political science and academic information sessions and exchanges. At the end of the week, the Danish students headed to Washington, D.C., but the visiting teachers said the students most value the opportunity to immerse themselves in the American culture by living with the families here. OHS students will have another opportunity to visit with their new friends when they visit Denmark in the spring.
