As well as the four German students, 17-year old Paul comes from Cholet, France and 17-year old Emma comes from Patamalm Sweden.

This year’s exchange student with Rotary is Alex from Spain.

All of the students are being hosted by members of the community and, with the exception of Neils, will be in Prince Rupert for the duration of the 10-month school year.
