Year 10 student off on Exchange to Denmark

Elise Williams (Year 10) attended a private ceremony with John Alexander OAM, MP for Bennelong in August.  During the ceremony she was presented with an Australian Flag to present to the Danish school she will be attending during her five month student exchange.  Mr Simon Przydacz, Head of Senior School, shared:  “This was a lovely occasion in recognition of her being awarded an SCCE Exchange Scholarship.”

Mr Przydacz continued:  “Over the past 10 years, Arden has had a significant involvement in exchange programs with numerous inbound and outbound students.  The benefits to our students and School of hosting exchange students are significant, broadening connections, cultures, language and much, much more. The benefits to our outbound students are also
substantial; whether for language, cultural, self-confidence or a whole host of other reasons, our students certainly embrace a unique learning experience that encoexchangeurages development of global citizenship. In the early years we had a strong link with Rotary; however, in recent times the majority of our exchanges have been through Southern Cross Cultural Exchange. Indeed this year we have welcomed two French exchange students Phileas and Leo through SCCE into Year 10, who overlapped across Terms 1 – 3.  Leo finished his time in Australia in August, while his host sister, Elise Williams, headed to Denmark on her Exchange with SCCE in August.”
