ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE
Rotary Clubs are now seeking applications from motivated secondary school students interested in spending a year overseas as part of this long established, successful educational and cultural exchange.
Students must be aged between 16 and 18 ½ at departure in January 2018
Rotary is a voluntary service organisation and there are no paid employees within the RYE programme and this helps keep the basic student cost to a minimum. Each selected student is “sponsored” by a local New Zealand Rotary Club and in turn is “hosted” overseas by a Rotary Club. There is no upfront application fee for RYE in District 9970.
For more detailed information about an exchange, please visit rotaryyouthexchange9970.org.nz
NATIONAL SCHOOLS POETRY AWARD
Open to all Year 12 & 13 students. Entries due 3 July 2017.
The Diplomacy Competition is a free online foreign policy contest run by UN Youth New Zealand for high school students. The Competition is now in its fourth year and gives students the chance to develop critical thinking, negotiation and problem solving skills by addressing real-world issues.
The competition will run from March to September. Students alone or in teams of up to four are able to participate as long as they have a connection to the internet, with no price, geographic or time restrictions. There are also prizes up for grabs too that follow with the rich experience the students will gain from the competition itself, as well as a trophy for the winning school in the junior and senior rounds.
