Elise is being hosted by the club for 12 months and during her time with us we want her to enjoy that great Pakuranga Rotary Hospitality.

Maybe each member could come up with an activity to share with Elise ranging from hosting her for dinner to meet you as well as family or friends or to take her somewhere in Auckland or beyond. It is a great opportunity to include her in your normal events and activities or to plan something you might not otherwise do… There is always the chance to invite a second exchange student for company if that suits.

To get us all started here is a list of things to consider. Even the most everyday ideas are good options because the NZ life we are all used to will be quite a different experience for Elise.

Let Graham know if you are interested in one of these activities or have something else in mind. Let Graham know now even if the timing is uncertain 021757074
