macrob 2017

Adelaide High School has taken part in exchanges with Melbourne Boys High School since 1910 and Mac.Robertson Girls' High School since 1913.

The Exchange is held early in Term 3. In one year the boys are in Adelaide and the girls in Melbourne - the next year vice versa. In 2017 the boys’ Exchange will be held in Adelaide while the girls’ Exchange will be held in Melbourne. The Exchange involves students in sporting, academic and social activities.

The Mac.Robertson Exchange is both a social and sporting occasion. There are competitions in the following sports: Badminton, Basketball, Chess, Cross Country, Debating, Football, Hockey, Netball, Rowing, Soccer, Softball, Table Tennis, Tennis, Theatre Sports and Volleyball.

The Melbourne Exchange has been very much a sports competition. Sports involved include Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Debating, Football, Rowing, Soccer, Table Tennis, Tennis, Theatre Sports and Volleyball.

Any student taking part in any sporting team for Adelaide High School during the year is eligible to be in any of the Exchange teams.
