Tim Bray from the Tintern Parent Group and member of the local Rotary helps to organise Rotary Youth Exchange, a program that helps students spend up to 12 months living and studying overseas. The School currently hosts a Youth Exchange student from Italy who is sadly leaving us in June. Another Youth Exchange student from Taiwan would also like to experience living and studying in Australia for 12 months and is hoping to join the Senior College in July.
We hope the community may be able to assist in sharing the hosting of this student for a period of approximately 3-4 months.
The role of a host family is to provide meals, accommodation and support for the student. The family is well supported by Rotary who provides support and training for both the student and the host family in the form of a Student Consellor/Mentor, a Country Co-ordinator, a local Youth Exchange committee and of course Tim Bray.
The training is available online and face to face and a Working With Children Check is required.
