THREE Australian students will head back Down Under after seven weeks exploring Wellington.

Isabelle Caltreaux, Emily Baker and Maddison Watson, from St Hilda’s High School on Australia’s Gold Coast, have been in town as part of an exchange programme with Wellington School.

They were paired up with students and lived with their families, and the roles will be reversed when the Wellington girls pack their bags for Australia in July.

Pictured are Maria Wall, Maddison Watson, pastoral deputy head Jeremy Hallows, Sophie Manning, headmaster Martin Reader, Isabelle Caltreaux, Annabelle Heaven-Ince and Emily Baker.
