Exchange teachers depart packed with memories

Farewell to our visiting exchange teachers. We hope that your experience has been a rewarding one and that you take home many memories from your exchange experience so that others may benefit from your time here.

Get involved in your local exchange leagues. Those who attended exchange weekends, dinners and walks organised by the NSW Exchange Teachers League would realise how hard the regional reps and the central committee work for the good of the exchange program.

Farewell to our outgoing exchange teachers. You are off to some exciting (yet cold) destinations: Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, England and Scotland. You and your families will have a wonderful year. You will continue to receive the Union’s publications while on exchange to keep abreast with all the news.

We are still accepting applications for 2018 – for all provinces in Canada, the UK and Colorado in the USA, and international schools in Europe (are you under 30 years of age or do you have an EU passport?)

For those of you who missed out on a match for next year, you will be our priority for the next round of matching, so please think seriously about reactivating your applications. Most who miss out the first time do not miss out the second time!

So if you want to experience one or two winter festive seasons (you may also apply for a mid year exchange) download an application from the IEU website ( and click on teacher exchange); You could also call Helen Gregory on 8202 8900 or 1800 467 943 or email a brief profile to
