Overseas Exchange

Contact         Sue Band

The CCGS Student Exchange Program offers extensive opportunities to students in students in Year 10 to experience another culture, another school, another family, maybe another language. It is a reciprocal program, so students share their everyday lives with a visitor from another country, welcoming them into their own home and school, as well as travelling overseas. Most of all it is a challenging discovery about yourself! You can develop a whole range of new skills and knowledge, confidence, maturity, leadership skills and the ability to deal with challenges and new situations.
