Ambon to Darwin
Earlier this month Darwin High School welcomed three students and a teacher on exchange from Ambon, Indonesia. This is the second part of the exchange, with our Indonesian Language students visiting Ambon last term.

The students and their teacher will spend eighteen days in Darwin and are enjoying the hospitality of their host families, the outstanding facilities of Darwin High School and the adventure lifestyle of the Northern Territory. Their days have been busy with official lunches, morning and afternoon teas; attending school; and weekends experiencing the sights and sounds of Darwin. Some of their outings have included Darwin markets, Parliament House and the NT Library, the Esplanade and the Administrator's House, the Waterfront and Sky Bridge, the Museum, and Doctors Gully Fish Feeding. Out of town, compliments of the DHS Julicher family, they enjoyed Adelaide River Tours, sighting crocodiles, buffaloes, birdlife and wallabies. On their agenda is a trip to the Territory Wildlife Park. This week we also welcomed the arrival of their Principal who will join the exchange for the next few days until the group returns home.
Darwin High School would like to recognise the support of its school community partners and everyone who has contributed to the Indonesian Exchange program for 2018.
