Students Enjoy International Trip
The visit engaged the students and their European partners in celebrating the overall project results on the key themes of Respect. The themes included Respect4 Myself & Others, Respect4 Environment, Respect4 Culture and Respect4 Wellbeing. The European visit is one of many Erasmus+ projects that LMC engage with to develop both staff and students.
In preparation for the visit, the group prepared information about the Lancaster and Morecambe district and the surrounding areas, where they presented the information to other students on the visit in the English lessons they attended.
On their arrival in Budapest, all the LMC students were assigned a buddy who looked after them, showed them around and helped them to integrate with others. For part of the visit, the group spent time at a school where they learnt about Budapest and how their school systems operate differently to the UK. They learned about the Hungarian culture and heritage and also experienced Hungarian dancing and music. The students also indulged in local and traditional cuisine where they discovered the country’s love for cottage cheese.
For the second part of the trip, the students explored the city and the beautiful sights and monuments, such as the Parliament building and St Stephen’s Basilica, which provided amazing views of the city and the Danube river. Whilst on the walking tour of the city, the Hungarian teachers explained the city’s intriguing culture and history.
Whilst on the trip, the students got to know the teachers from other countries, which allowed them to learn about the teachers’ views about different topics, such as Brexit and how their schools compared to LMC.
HND Sport student Sarah Earl supported the students on their trip, commenting “I was really proud of how the girls conducted themselves, engaged in all of the activities and also had so much fun. I also gained lots of valuable experience and I am very thankful of LMC to put their trust in me and allow me to go as a group leader and point of contact. It is somewhere I would love to go back to and it was great to integrate and develop friends that I will stay in touch with. The trip provided me with a lot of responsibility which will be key information to highlight when I apply for jobs in the future.
Programme Area Manager for Sport at LMC, Jayne Roper, said “The European visit provided a valuable experience for the students and further enhanced their employability skills, such as presentation skills, networking and research skills. These skills are essential for their personal development and future career aspirations”
