At Indooroopilly SHS we have been collaborating with Student Exchange Australia New Zealand in the organisation of our school study tours since 2009. Every two years, our Spanish immersion students have been attending to a school in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Madrid, for four weeks while staying in a boarding school. The enormous task of sending overseas approximately 50 students has been eased by a professional organisation and a tailored program that suit the specific needs of our students. Staff at Student Exchange Australia New Zealand have visited the school in Brisbane to deliver presentations, and  has always been in contact with the school and the parents to respond and alleviate any questions or concerns. Following the feedback from teachers, students and parents,  I have no hesitation to state that this is a once in a life time experience for our students that boost their language development to prepare them much better for their Senior Schooling Years of Languages.
