Australia – Rotary/Shepparton
The Australian Program is a Cross Cultural and Leadership Program hosted by the Rotary Club in Shepparton in Australia. The program began in 1998 and a number of students have represented South Africa very well. The learners are hosted by various families in Australia. These families are part of the Rotary Club itself. They mostly live in Shepparton. Most of the families have hosted previous learners. During the stay the learners are shown around the area. For a week or two the learners attend Shepparton High School. They do not really attend any classes as the school year in Australia is almost over. For the rest of the time the stay is composed of traveling and meeting other members of the Rotary Club.
