Exchange helps to enrich ideas
IN its latest effort to broaden the educational and personal lives of students, Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School has participated in its second year of exchange under the Round Square Program.
Founded on the philosophy that a student’s education should extend beyond the confines of a classroom, the program reciprocally exchanged four Year 6 students from Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School and Canberra’s Radford College.
Round Square primary school coordinator Geoff Dunbar said it was a great opportunity for the students to experience something totally different in a whole new environment.
Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School Year 6 student Tom Offer said his time in Canberra earlier this month was an educational and fun experience.
“It was great to learn about other States and we have made some good friends along the way as well,” he said.
Radford College Year 6 student Zimita Lyras found it interesting and exciting to compare the similarities and differences between the two States.
“In my school we do more on our own and rely on technology but here there is more focus on books and I like the big ovals and backyards.”
Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School students and Canberra’s Radford College participated in a reciprocal exchange program. Year 6 students in their host pairs are Heath Shaw and Tom Offer, Zimitra Lyras and Leila Holben, Daniella Botha and Josephine Moore-Truswell, and Nicole Bauza and Kaitlin Barsby.
