St Margaret’s School provides students with the opportunity to participate in international student exchanges, a consequence of our commitment to the Queen Margaret of Scotland Girls’ Schools Association. Past students have had the fortune to explore renowned locations such as York (England), Aberdeen (Scotland), Wellington and Christchurch (New Zealand) as part of the exchange program.
The program is a prominent component of international engagement and is designed to enhance the personal and educational journey of the St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School students. The resoundingly positive response from past participants in the exchange program is a testament to its popularity and success. As a consequence of the school community’s enthusiastic reception to the international exchange program, opportunities for students will undoubtedly continue to expand, with a wider assortment of exchange locations to be offered in the future for our senior girls and boys.
