CHILE EXCHANGE 2018 The 10 boys from BHS and 11 girls from GHS are now three weeks into their month long Chile exchange. They spent the first two weeks attending school at San Nicolás de Myra as well as exploring the capital city Santiago and Valparaíso on the coast.
The last week has involved full immersion in Chilean culture while on holiday with their host families. While all are having an amazing time, some have been fortunate enough to see Santiago from the air (in a helicopter), ski on the Andes Mountains at altitudes higher than the peak of Mount Taranaki, surf and paraglide along the Chilean coast, and a few have even travelled to the north of Chile and seen the Atacama desert - the driest desert in the world.
The group arrive back in NZ on Saturday 28th July.
