Eva Kessels, Whitsunday Exchange 2015

"Looking back on the exchange, it is definitely the best experience that I have ever had. The Whitsundays is a truly beautiful place, with awesome people, and I was so lucky to become involved in their way of life. A highlight of the trip was the school camp, the scenery was unreal - everywhere I looked was a postcard photo. If you are thinking of applying for this exchange definitely seize the opportunity because I can assure you that you will learn so much and have an amazing time."

Sarah Jackson, Whitsunday Exchange 2015

"When I listened to the information Mrs Foot gave us earlier this year, I wasn't sure I wanted to do it. But when I told mum and dad about it they told me I should definitely give it a go. I'm glad I took their advice as it was the most incredible experience of my life. I have made incredible friends who I Skype often:  I already want to go back and see them again. My exchange was full of fun, challenges and really interesting experiences. We went to beautiful places, saw what their learning was like and, most importantly, had SO much fun."
