About RANZSE

Overview

This is the 53rdyear of Rotary Australia & New Zealand Student Exchange
 
Rotary is perhaps the most respected and safest student exchange throughout the world.
 
Rotary Australia & New Zealand Student Exchange is sometimes called the "matched twin exchange"
 
Our committee administers the programme of matched exchanges with secondary school students from our District, between the ages of 13.5 and 16 years on the 1st of January of the participating year, and compatible Australian secondary school students of the same age. We are primarily aiming at students who will be in Year 10 or Year 11 in the year of travel.
 
The exchange covers two school terms whereby the New Zealand Students travels to Australia for one term and will host their Australian match in the second term. During the term of exchange in New Zealand, you will get to enjoy these young students and introduce them to your school, club and home and teach them about New Zealand.
 
This is a wonderful opportunity for the student to be away from home and be "independent" in a supervised environment.
 
They will learn:
 
  • To be part and considerate of another family
  • Attend another school in another country
  • Experience personal development and growth
  • Extend their confidence and maturity.
  • Learn to budget and taking responsibility
  • How their Academic progress can be continued.
 
RANZSE differs from most youth exchange in that the student stays with the matched family in the other country with the support of the RANZSE committee and local Rotary club in each country. It is for a shorter time away from home, the student participants are younger, and they reciprocate the hosting experience with their match family.
 
The sponsoring Rotary Clubs in New Zealand and Australia each provide a Councillor for both the outbound and inbound student and also supply a Student Exchange uniform for the outbound students.
 
If you wish any further information or have any questions about the Rotary Australia New Zealand Student Exchange, please feel free to contact me.
