Overseas Exchange

Your child will have the opportunity to go on an international exchange and build international friendships.

As part of our Global perspective on education, linking to the IB PYP framework of being internationally minded, ANI is in a position to offer overseas trips to Australia (Cairns), Japan (Osaka & Fukuoka), Noumea and Singapore.

Each of these trips provide many unique learning opportunities. For our students who go to Japan they are billeted with an overseas host family while all overseas groups will experience the sights and sounds of a new country from a local perspective. The trips are offered to all students (year 7 & 8) and may provide a once in a lifetime opportunity for our students to experience a different culture and customs that are diverse from their own.

The focus for each trip is to learn more about the culture, language and heritage of the country they visit. However, each trip will have its own unique areas of educational interest and will vary in cost depending on location (trips are self- funded by the students). Students will be notified of what trips will be taking place each year and are asked to send in an application, to be considered for a trip.

Careful consideration is given towards the students who apply and are selected for each trip such as: minimum numbers and on some trips limited numbers. We also take into account world or local events that might impact the trip taking place.

All ANI students are encouraged to apply for one of these trips as they offer authentic learning and cultural experiences for all who attend.
