Valdosta - Some South Georgia students are gearing up for a lesson overseas.

Fourteen students from Valdosta Middle and High Schools will head to Great Britain for 10 days in June. The students will live with host families, whose children visited Valdosta in January.

The exchange was scheduled for last year, but was postponed because of September 11th.

"They'll be presented with challenges that they must complete as part of the exchange," said Ingrid Hall, Trip Sponsor.  "One of the challenges they'll have is to help build a garden that the students in Great Britian are working on."

The students had to raise the money for the trip on their own. They've already raised the amount for their trip, but are still looking for donations to buy gifts for their host families.
