Skyping Wisconsin (St. John Vianney)
Yesterday morning we rushed into school early to meet with some of our blog buddies, a school in Wisconsin called St. John Vianney.
Here's Dasha to tell you more about it!
We all came to school very early and it was quite amazing and exciting to see how many people were there. They asked us a lot of questions (some of the ones we were going to ask) and next time we're looking forward to asking our questions because we ran out of time. There were a lot of students in that class and I was amazed that in grade 6/year 7 they switch teachers for each class. We don't do that in New Zealand until year 9! It was neat to talk with people with American accents because I have a Canadian accent.
We had a really great time but sometimes it was a little hard to hear people because we all talked at the same time. We loved Skyping with St. John Vianney and it was interesting to hear how differently they do things at school (some things are the same though with our lives, like the music and the movies we like.)
Thanks St. John Vianney for all of your comments on our blog - we think you ROCK! (Miss H)
