We are very fortunate to be hosting two students from Scots College in Wellington, New Zealand. Jonah Christians and Robbie Barnsley are participating in the exchange as part of the St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School Exchange Program. Whilst here the boys have been involved in the Year 9 Endeavour Curriculum Program, as well as having the opportunity to participate in various other school activities, including attending the SIS Swimming Sports and running in the House Cross Country event.
Their host families have provided them with plenty of adventure by taking them to a variety of iconic Melbourne and Victoria locations, exposing the boys to the sporting, tourist, cultural, eating and social opportunities our beautiful State has to offer. Trips have included exploring Melbourne, attending an AFL Football match and surfing. Coming up, Jonah and Robbie will be participating in the School’s ANZAC Day Ceremony as well as participate in an AFL Football match. At the end of the term Sam Chipperfield and Ben Vasiliu will be heading over to New Zealand to experience what life is like at Scots College.
Students in Year 8 are encouraged to apply for the Exchange program to New Zealand when applications open later in the year.

Year 9 Coordinator
