Melbourne Exchange Program 2017

Boys Exchange Logo

With the Melbourne / MacRob Exchanges taking place in Week 4 of Term 3 (Sunday, August 13 – Wednesday, August 16), organisation is nearing completion, with  arrangements being made to host the boys from Melbourne High School in Adelaide and fly the Adelaide High girls over to Melbourne to compete against MacRobertson Girls High School.

The Exchanges are an integral part of the Adelaide High School experience and a highlight of the school year for many participants. The boys’ exchange had its inception in 1910 when the AHS football and rifle shooting teams visited Melbourne. The girls’ exchanges began in 1913 when Adelaide girls competed in basketball and tennis matches in Melbourne.
