Forty students from Islip High School visited Amityville High School on Dec. 7, getting to know their peers in another district as part of Amityville’s Cultural Exchange program. The purpose of the initiative is to establish new friendships and create bonds between students from different schools.

Led by coordinator Jason McGowan, the students breakfasted together and participated in icebreakers to start the day, then paired up. Each Islip student was brought by their Amityville partner to the latter’s classes throughout the day. The event concluded with lunch and a debriefing session.

Amityville’s students will in turn visit Islip in the spring.
