Hi folks, I'm organising an exchange - a rather unorthodox one, as the only way I can make it work is to include dance and PE students as we don't have enough year 11/12 linguists.... My main questions is, 'who pays what?' and what other costs have I forgotten? so here are my thoughts so far; We will pay the cost of food and lodgings to accomodate French children our end, insurance for our kids, the visits whilst the kids are in France, transport (coach and ferry) to and whilst in France, petrol, insurance and breakdown for my car - to be used for emergencies whilst in France. Pupils then bring money for food during travel and pocket money. Likewise, the French hosts/families will do similar. With 'copperbeech's help of a letter, I have drafted the first letter but I wondered, have I missed any costs that you can think of? I'd also be interested to see if anyone has a risk assessment to cover anything I might have forgotten? Many thanks, MM.
