From February 10 through to February 16, twelve students and two teachers from La Salle College Hong Kong visited Oakhill College on an exchange programme. La Salle College is recognised as the top school in Hong Kong for both academic excellence and an all-round education. While at Oakhill College the students were hosted by 6 families. The students participated in the family routine and attended school with their host. It is a great way for both the Hong Kong students and the Oakhill College students and families to share and get to understand about different customs and cultures. This activity fulfils the strategic intent to develop young men and woman more understanding, tolerant, and respectful of each other, more able to engage in the world with greater insight. One of the host parents explained “when we agreed to the exchange program we had no idea it would be so rewarding, unique, fun and educational for our whole family. We opened our home to these two boys, they were a pleasure to host and we have no doubt created memorable memories for the boys and an opportunity to creating long lasting friendship. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity, it certainly was an enjoyable experience for all”.
