This April, St. Mark's welcomed ten visitors from Bhutan. Seven students, two teachers, and the CEO of the Desi High School in Thimphu, Bhutan arrived on the Southborough campus and immersed themselves in the life of the School.
Dr. Laura Appell-Warren, Director of Global Citizenship at St. Mark's, says that "The exchange with the Desi High School in Thimphu Bhutan has been the result of five years of hard work on the part of the Global Citizenship Office Team, as well as by our colleague Ratu Drukpa in Bhutan. Last year our students traveled to Bhutan and visited the school and learned about dance and life as Bhutanese students. Now we have the privilege of hosting the CEO of the Desi High School, two teachers, and seven students at St. Mark's. This program is a great example of the ways in which we can all expand our understanding of people, places and cultures from around the world!"
