The Rotary Australia and New Zealand Student Exchange (RANZSE) program is run by some Rotary Districts in Australia and all districts in New Zealand. It is designed for 14 to 16 year old students to experience a true “exchange” with a family in the other country. New Zealand students arrive in Australia and attend school with their matched student during Term 2. Both students return to New Zealand and attend the New Zealand student’s school during Term 3.
The Australia/New Zealand Student Exchanges offer an opportunity to be away from home and be “independent” in a supervised environment, building confidence and maturity as well as developing lifelong friendships between individual students and families.
Papakura Rotary Club has long supported the programme and selects one student each year for the exchange. Contact Us for more information or visit
