South Wairarapa Rotary

Rotary NZ-AUS Matched Student Exchange (RANZE)

Australia-New Zealand
Student Exchange program

The Rotary Club of South Wairarapa has supported this programme in previous years and will welcome applications in 2018.

This program is designed to foster international understanding between Australians and New Zealanders. It is a family-to-family exchange. 

Students need to possess good knowledge, be responsible, of good character, and most importantly, be able to mix well.   


There is a Rotary District committee which administers the program of matched exchanges whereby Secondary School students from our district, aged between 13.5 and 16 years on January 1, exchange with Australian students. 


The New Zealand student lives with the family of their matched Australian student, for 13 weeks attending the same school. 


The Australian student then accompanies the New Zealand student back to their New Zealand home and school for 13 weeks.
