Network of exchanges with Australian High Schools.

Among the international exchange activities organised by the Convitto Nazionale ‘Paolo Diacono’ in order to strenghten the pupils' individual school education, there is a ten-year-long  project developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Education in Queensland (Australia).

In the past years over 60 students attended some schools in the Australian Mount Gambier High School for a period six weeks, carrying on an experience considered highly educational, from the learning but also social and linguistic point of view.  The project also envisages mutual exchange. Throughout the years the relationship between the two schools has become tighter and tighter: the increasing presence of Australian pupils and teachers in our schools has been a precious source of knowledge-sharing and improvement of relations.
