NZ - Australia Matched Student Exchange
This programme is designed to foster international understanding between Australians
and New Zealanders. Although arranged by the district committee it is largely run
on a family to family basis with support from clubs.
Students need to possess good knowledge, be responsible, of good character, and
most importantly, be able to mix well.
The committee administers the programme of matched exchanges whereby secondary school
students from our district aged between 13.5 and 16 years on January 1 exchange
with Australian students. The New Zealand student lives with the family of their
matched Australian student for 13 weeks attending the same school. The Australian
student accompanies the New Zealand student back to their New Zealand home and school
for 13 weeks.
