What is RANZSE ?

The Rotary Australia and New Zealand Student Exchange (RANZSE) program is run by some 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.

In 2021 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 2021 we are that there will be 40 students from Australia and New Zealand participating in the program. In the past 10 years, more than 1650 students have participated in this life-changing experience.
