RANZSE is a family-to-family exchange programme, facilitated by Australian and New Zealand Rotary Clubs, for 14 to 16 year old college students.

Emma Joss talks about her exchange experience

The Rotary Australia and New Zealand Student Exchange (RANZSE) program is run by some forward thinking Rotary Districts in Australia and all districts in New Zealand.

It is designed for 14 to 16 year old students to experience a true “exchange” with a family in the other country.

Australian students arrive in New Zealand and attend school with their matched student during Term 2.  Both students return to Australia and attend the Australian student’s school during Term 3.  

Each year it alternates as which country goes first.

In the past 10 years, more than 1,650 students have participated in this life-changing experience.

The Waikanae Rotary Club is pleased to have sponsored four students through this programme so far
