Kanada 2010


Das Schüler-Austausch-Programm mit der Riverside Secondary High School in Vancouver gehört - zusammen mit dem langjährigen Buffalo Grove High School –Projekt (Chicago) - zu den absoluten Highlights in der Laufbahn eines Schülers des „GRg3-Kundmanngasse“.
Heuer flogen Schülerinnen und Schüler der 7A und 7C gemeinsam mit den Professoren Pamela Baukney und Josef Grießl an die Westküste Nordamerikas, um Land und Leute direkt vor Ort kennen zu lernen und Sprachkenntnisse zu erweitern und zu vertiefen (ausgenommen natürlich Frau Prof. Baukney, die als „Einheimische“ ihre Muttersprache perfekt beherrscht).

San Francisco
Der Flug führte uns von Wien über Frankfurt nach San Francisco, wo wir bei herrlichem Herbstwetter die ersten 3 Tage verbrachten. Dann folgte für fast alle von uns absolutes Neuland:  Kanada! 

Ein riesiges Land, dessen Dimensionen kaum zu erahnen sind. Die nächsten vier Tage verbrachten wir auf der Insel Vancouver Island, die Vancouver direkt vorgelagert ist. Genauer gesagt waren wir in Victoria, der Hauptstadt der Provinz British Columbia und in Tofino, einem wunderbaren Naturparadies, direkt am Pazifik. Whale watching und Kanufahren gehörten zu den Höhepunkten dieses Inselbesuchs.  Dann ging´s mit der Fähre zurück nach Vancouver und weiter zur Schule in Port Coquitlam, wo  wir von den Gasteltern freundlich in Empfang genommen wurden. Es folgten rund  zehn Tage, die durch Schulbesuch, Stadtbesichtigungen und viel Freizeit mit den Familien ausgefüllt waren. Am letzten Montag im September hieß es wieder Abschied zu nehmen von unseren Hosts und die Heimreise anzutreten.
Was bleibt sind viele wunderschöne, unvergessliche Eindrücke, neue Freundschaften  und nicht zuletzt eine größere Sprachkompetenz, die ja ein erklärtes Ziel dieser Reise war.

 

Impressions from students:

The highlight of my trip was a weekend with my host parents, Thomas and Philip in Whistler. For four years I had been dreaming about going to this beautiful place. Whistler Mountain is famous for its bike park.
It was the best bike park for downhill bikers I had ever seen. So there is one dream less on my list.

  The funniest moment of our trip was in Torfino. On Thursday morning we went kayaking. After we came back we went down to the ocean and ran into the water. The funny thing was that we did not take off our clothes, we just threw each other into the water. We did not even notice that the water was extremely cold.
The best moment on my trip was the kayaking. We made a race with our kayaks. There were always two people in a boat and I shared my boat with Esther. Our guide told us that the people who reached the house which was floating on the water first would win. The race was really exhausting and my arms hurt, but in the end we won.

The highlight of my trip was the ride with the Peak2Peak-Gondola. To be exact, my host family and I went with one of the Silver-Gondolas. These gondolas have a glass-bottom so you can watch the valley 400 meters below you. We were very lucky because the clouds went away and we had an amazing view.
The worst moment was saying good bye to the Canadians. I made a lot of friends. I’m looking forward to seeing them again in March when the Canadians come to Austria. Actually this is the only bad moment I remember.

  The funniest moment was when we were in Victoria in the Best Western Hotel. I made a pizza and then the fire alarm went off, so Rupert and I took the emergency stairs downstairs, but they were the wrong stairs so we had to run upstairs again, then we took the elevator down to the reception. We told them the true story. The receptionist told us to open the windows to let in the air. While we were downstairs, Julijan took the batteries out of the fire alarm. After some minutes a service man came to our room and asked us whether we had been smoking or not. We told him the true story and he told us that it did not matter. Next morning we did not get a wake-up call, but Valentin called us and ordered a pizza for the next night, this was a very funny situation.
