The College’s relationship with students and staff from the Italian high school, Liceo Statale 25 Aprile Portogruaro, commenced in 2013 when we hosted Italian students in our College community. Following that inaugural visit, our students have enjoyed many opportunities to travel to Italy and immerse themselves in the Italian language and culture.

We are very pleased to announce that the Italian Exchange will recommence next year, with the opportunity for students and families to host an Italian student in August for a period of two weeks. In addition, we are planning to travel to Italy during the month of December 2023; during this time students will be hosted by Italian families during a two-week stay in Portogruaro, before enjoying a week of sightseeing prior to our return home in time for Christmas. The Italian Exchange will be open to students from Years 10 – 12; however, priority will be given to students of Italian.

The exchange program not only benefits students’ linguistic capabilities, it provides opportunities to engage in cultural experiences and witness personal growth, leading to increased self-confidence and self-esteem.

Early in 2023 an information evening will be held for interested students and families. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the College, either via email or phone. My email contact is: g.puntillo@ignatius.sa.edu.au
