All of Student Ambassador Exchange’s children have officially started school for the 2016-2017 year, and we couldn’t be more excited for their journeys. While back to school traditions here in the United States range from an apple for your new teacher to buying that new backpack, we wanted to go global!
This great article over at ParentMap talks about some traditions from Germany to Russia to India, and we love the idea of the Kazakhstani tradition of every child bringing a flower for their teacher. In China, the country is so large that traditions range from visiting exhibits at local museums to local celebrities visiting the schools!
Check out some of these photos from our students and read their captions to find out stories of first experiences so far!
Esther baked her very first cake with her host family before her first day of school!
Greg received his tshirt to show off his Spartan pride for this school year!
Kiko walked home from school on one of her first days – she got to make the journey with her host siblings!
You can be a part of a student’s journey from the first through the last day of school. We are currently matching students for the Spring 2017 semester. Meet our spring students and check back regularly to meet new students added!
