Cultural Exchange Program


Students studying Chinese in the senior year levels have the opportunity to participate in a Chinese cultural immersion experience. Students travel to China and visit historic and cultural attractions in cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. They visit schools and live the culture they have been studying in the classroom. Travel to China broadens students’ minds and enhances their academic studies.


Senior students studying VCE French have been travelling to France for many years. The students spend six weeks in France, are hosted by a French family and attend a local school with minimal contact with other Australian students. Fostering links with families overseas provides an invaluable bridge to the joy of new friendships, whilst reinforcing the purposeful study of languages.


Students studying Italian in Years 10 and 11 are provided with the opportunity to take part in an overseas study experience. They visit Italy’s major cities including Rome, Florence and Venice and live firsthand the Italian culture they have studied. They attend a language school for foreigners and focus on improving their communication skills. Visiting historical and tourist attractions and living in an Italian city provides them with an authentic exposure to the Italian way of life.
