Rotary students Europe bound

A NEW life is approaching for four Bundaberg teenagers who will jet-set around the globe at the end of this week.

School leavers Anna Hanigan, Matthew Trentin, Elise Lane and Ashleigh Gilson will all take part in the Rotary Youth Exchange Program and will soon bask in the distinctive cultures and lifestyles of their new homes in Denmark, Belgium and Austria.

Each will live overseas for a year with host families, attending a local school, learning new languages, making new friends and acting as young ambassadors for our country.

Shalom College graduate Anna Hanigan said she was thrilled to be going on a new adventure.

"It's going to be challenging living in a different culture with a different language, but I'm really excited," she said.

"I am really looking forward to seeing all the sights in Europe we really don't have here."

Fellow Shalom graduate Matthew Trentin said he was excited about gaining a wider view of the world.

"I'm probably looking forward to the Euro tour we get to go on most," he said.
