The concept and educational value of school exchange programmes have been well established for a number of decades throughout the world. Students gain immeasurably from the immersion in another country and culture as well as benefit enormously from the exposure to different curricula and approaches to education. Whilst making new friends, learning new skills, studying new subjects, sight-seeing, experiencing challenges and enjoying daily life outside of their comfort zone; exchange students visiting our College and our girls living overseas flourish as they embrace what our programme offers them.
St Anne’s College runs five student exchanges every year for different age groups.
FORM FIVE (GRADE 11) EXCHANGE PROGRAMME:
Pymble Ladies College, Sydney Australia
