ACK-SHC Exchange 2016 - Become a Host (Issue 9 2016)
Written on the 23 June 2016
Planning for the 60th Assumption College Kilmore (ACK) and Sacred Heart College (SHC) Exchange is well underway and SHC are excited to be hosting the event this year. Students that have received a nomination form are reminded to make sure they return their consent forms to Mrs Amanda Reichelt in Student Services by Friday 24 June.
To ensure the success of the weekend, participating students are required to host one of the 125 ACK students who will travel from Victoria and play a part in the Exchange. To host a billet, individuals that reside in the home over 18 years old are required to have a valid police check. The cost of these checks will be covered by the College, and a police check night will be held in the Parlour at the Senior School on Wednesday 29 June from 3:30-7:00pm. If you already have a current police check please email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note we would love families that may not have a student participating in the exchange to consider hosting a billet. It is a great way to become involved in the Exchange and SHC families are more than welcome to attend events over the weekend and watch their billet in action. If you would like to host a billet for the weekend from Friday 19 August to Sunday 21 August please contact Amanda Reichelt on 8350 2500. It is a wonderful opportunity for your child to develop a friendship with a fellow Marist.
We would love to see past students and staff who have participated in the Exchange at some of the events over the course of the weekend. Look out for more details over the coming weeks on our Facebook page and in our College newsletter!
