The HGHS Foreign Exchange Club is offering two students in eighth grade the opportunity to learn, live and explore Australia for seven weeks through the student exchange program. Greeley students will have the chance to attend the prestigious Carey Grammar School in Melbourne, Australia. This program is ONLY open to students in the Class of 2017.
In addition, two students from the Carey Grammar School will attend Greeley for seven weeks and experience our culture, community, lifestyle and learning environment. Carey Grammar has a robust exchange program with many countries yet this is their only exchange in the United States.
This is a direct, reciprocal exchange, which means that participating students will live in each other’s houses while in the foreign country. The exchange is sponsored by the Lions Club of Pound Ridge.
Timing of exchange
Students will arrive in each country for the start of second semester. Two Carey students will arrive at the end of January 2014 and stay for seven weeks, which includes February break. The two Greeley students will go to Australia in early July after completing ninth grade for seven weeks including one week of school break there. HGHS students will be back in time to participate in fall sports.
If this program sounds at all interesting to you, don’t miss the parent-student informational night next week: Tuesday, May 7 at 7p.m. in the HGHS Academic Commons. Applications will be available at this time.
