Due to the many issues caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 summer programme.
We know what an important role FCLC plays in many people’s lives and we feel it also performs an important function in today’s world as it not only helps improve our students’ English but is also designed to broaden their horizons, promote kindness and instill respect and acceptance of others. Many groups and individuals take part in our programme year after year, which is a testament to the welcoming, friendly safe place that awaits each student. The programme is also important for our staff, many of whom work with us summer after summer and pull together our academic and activity programmes to encourage our students to get to know Scotland and other students and their cultures in an English-speaking environment.
Despite our sadness at cancelling this summer’s programme, we have been heartened by the numerous emails of support we have received from agencies, group leaders, parents and staff who, like us, are disappointed that FCLC 2020 will not take place but are now looking forward to 2021 and the part they can play in next summer’s programme. Preparations have already begun for a challenging, fun and rewarding summer and we invite you to be a part of it. The beautiful Fettes College campus, our motivated and caring staff and our vibrant and historic city are waiting for you.
