Chris Morris club youth director welcomes Martina Navarria to Melbourne

During the year Martina will be hosted by four Rotary families and is now attending Warragul Regional College. One of her first new experiences in Australia - wearing a school uniform!!

Martina heads of for her first day at school.

One of Martina’s first activities was to attend a game of Aussie rules football at the MCG. She really enjoyed the game and is keen to follow the competition.

The Rotary Club of Warragul is now calling for Warragul and District school students aged between 15 and 17.5 years to study abroad for one year as a part of the international Rotary student exchange program.

This program gives young people the opportunity to live in a foreign country, immerse themselves in a different culture and perhaps learn a new language. Exchange students make lifelong international friends. More information on the program can be found on

Students interested in this program can contact Warragul Rotary Youth Director Chris Morris on 0418537995 or email
