Mary Ward Students of year 9 from three different German schools (Traunstein/Sparz, Kempten and Nurenberg) embarked on a very special combination tour: getting to know Mary Ward's home and studying English! Frau Hafensteiner from Traunstein/Sparz provided quality teaching for exam preparation, and on top of that all other tours, sights, speaking exercises in the city of York were done in English.
