A Student Exchange programme recently completed in Turkey has been hailed a great success. The mid-October tour, jointly hosted by Gallipoli &Dardanelles International and Gelibolu Derneği, attracted students from both Turkey and Britain in a six-day tour which focused on the cultural, commemorative and historical aspects of this fascinating country. The students met with local dignitaries, visited schools, sports clubs and museums and toured major battlefield sites on the Gallipoli peninsula. A full day was set aside to visit Troy.
The success of the Student Exchange was highlighted by its appearance in the national press:
The success of the inaugural 2014 Student Exchange will go a long way towards ensuring more programmes are put in place in the future. You can play your part by making a donation to future exchanges.
