New Students Brought to Seymour High School: Germany Edition


Camryn Sterling, Staff Writer

Seymour High School has the honor of hosting seven foreign exchange students in the 2019-2020 school year!  The students are: Josh Galbraith from Australia, Alex Vieth from Denmark, Tizia Tripp from Germany, Camboulas Vincent from France, Caterina Zanotti, Margherita Rodeschini from Italy, and Marina Lozano from Spain. Every week, there will be a feature on one of these students.

The Owl Newspaper has the honor of featuring Tizia Tripp!

Tizia is 16 years old and is from Kempten (Allgeau), Germany. The Owl Newspaper asked Tizia a few questions about how her experience has been in the United States.

Question #1: How is your school different from school in the United States?

Answer #1: “The difference between the school here and Germany is, that our classes are only 45 minutes long and much more boring than here. You can’t choose fun classes like Choir or P.E. for example. Furthermore, we don’t have sports teams from our schools, so we don’t have any games that everyone is going too. That’s something I’m going to miss a lot when i’m back! I’m sure.”

Question #2: What is your favorite class here and why?

Answer #2: “I don’t really have a favorite class because I like a lot of classes. But one of my favorites is Biology because I think it’s a really interesting subject, and my teacher speaks a little German.”

Question #3: What do you miss most about your home?

Answer #3: “I miss most my hobby to go dancing and the food!”

Thank you Tizia!!

If one of these students are spotted, make sure to welcome them!
