The Third Year Charlotte Exchange visited North Carolina just before the Presidential election; a very exciting time to be there! The group spent just under two weeks exploring the area and our partnership school – Charlotte Country Day. A beautiful time of year to visit, with the colour change of the leaves as well as 25 degrees sunshine, allowed the students to spend a weekend in the mountains in Virginia alongside the usual day trips. These included a trip to NASCAR museum, the art displays of the Bechtler and Mint Museum, the New South exhibit and a scavenger hunt in uptown Charlotte. The students also dressed up for Halloween in school, watched a spelling bee and attended the first win of the Carolina Panthers’ football season!
