Students have whale of a time



ABOUT 40 American student ambassadors enjoyed a bit of Australian culture this weekend.

On their cultural exchange trip from Sydney to Cairns, the students spend their nights in motel accommodation, but their Coffs Harbour experience was slightly different.

The students, who mostly come from Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota, enjoyed a couple of nights of home cooked meals and family life with Coffs Harbour families.

For some, this trip was the first time they saw the coastline and rainforest, so going whale watching was always going to be a highlight, particularly when a baby whale made an appearance.

Rotary organised the home-stays, as they do every year.

For now, the students are back to staying in motels, but another lot will be in Coffs Harbour next month to spend some time with Rotarian families and learn about the Australian culture.
