Rebecca Elliot – Bridge House School in South Africa

South Africa has been such an amazing experience! I’m over halfway through my exchange here and wish I could stay forever. Highlights include bungee jumping off the world’s highest bridge, attending an arts festival, drinking loads of good tea, and going on a safari in Kruger National Park.

Rebecca ElliotI’m attending Bridge House School in Paarl, which is near Cape Town. Bridge House is very different from Athenian. Uniforms, calling teachers Ma’am and Sir (or Mr, Mrs, Ms, Miss), different classes and class schedule, and almost anything else you could think of, makes Bridge House almost the exact opposite of Athenian. But I love it just as much! Everyone is super friendly and welcoming, and uniforms aren’t that bad. Having the time of my life! Cheers!
