Brockway, PA – Several students from Brockway continue their adventures in Germany, but they’re almost ready to come back home. Keep reading to hear personal interviews with the students, learn more about the program, and see photos and videos.

It’s part of the GAPP (German American Partnership Program) exchange. The Brockway students are visiting the school which had sent students to Brockway earlier this year.

The GAPP exchange was started by German teacher at Brockway Eric Stawecki in 2011. It has continued since, sending students back and forth. Students from Hann. Munden, Germany can come to America for a month in spring, and our local students have the option of going there in summer.

Listen to some of the students (David, Mariah, and Austin) talk about their favorite experiences and what they’ve learned from traveling in a new country.

Students who traveled this year are Mariah Alanskas, Austin Bullers, Weston Hrin, Kayla Jamison, Taylor Little, David Nagele. Chaperones are Eric Stawecki and Christine Alanskas.

The students will be back in Brockway by the evening of June 28.
