In two separate, but equally inspiring, trips, 18 PC students and 2 teachers have traveled to Sestroretsk, Russia, to establish a relationship with School #556 there. Having won an AFS-sponsored contest, the school was able to send Mr. David Woody and 10 students in 1995, then Mr. Robert Hattman took 8 more of our kids in 1997. In between, we hosted 16 Russian students from our sister school, as well as their Headmistress, and two teachers, plus 3 other Russian AFS kids.
Sestroretsk is very near St. Petersburg, which we toured with regularity.
we try to keep up-to-date on addresses where you can contact folks we met there.
and the people we met were warm, generous, and kind.
