This program is designed for 14 and 15 year old students (usually in Year 9) to experience a true exchange with a family in NZ. Local students are matched with a NZ student and the exchange takes place in Term 2 and Term 3. 

The Australian student’s family hosts the NZ student and includes them in their normal family life. The student attends school while they are in the country and the Australian student gets to do the same while in NZ. In addition to sightseeing with host family, students also have the opportunity to become involved in local Rotary projects.  They will go on a week long “safari”, travelling with other students from their own country to see and experience what the local and not so local area has to offer.

Expressions of interest are closing now for participation the following year and the forms can be completed online by the student and family.
