Guangdong International Youth Exchange Week

Macquarie College is pleased to announce that it has recently been selected by the NSW Department of Industry and StudyNSW, as the NSW representative at the upcoming Guangdong International Youth Exchange Week in China, between 25 July to 31 July 2019.

As such the College is seeking expressions of interest from students in Years 8, 9 and 10 who would like to be selected in the Macquarie College delegation. Students in Years 8, 9 and 10 today received the Information Pack during a special presentation by Principal, Mr Rohan Deanshaw.

Six students and two teachers will participate in this unique learning opportunity abroad, featuring scientific, sporting and cultural events in Guangzhou, Foshan and Shenzhen. They will experience Cantonese culture and Guangdong’s rich legacy of economic and social development, notably Guangdong is considered as one of the emerging “Silicon Valley” type regions of mainland China.

This is a tremendous opportunity for our students and we look forward to making an announcement over the coming weeks about the delegation who will travel to China this July.
