Rebounders Debrief Day
On Saturday 25 July we hosted a day long debrief for our 2019 rebounder cohort, as well as 2020 outbounder Taylor Randall who unfortunately had her exchange to The Netherlands cut short due to Covid-19.

We had seven rebounders in attendance with their parents, and spent time debriefing separately with both the students and their parents to understand what worked well with their exchange experience, and where there are opportunities for improvement.
 
Each student also gave a presentation on their exchange experience - many of which featured food, travel, beloved host families and much loved host dogs!

We were grateful to be joined by:
  • Member for Moncrief Angie Bell MP, a former Rotary Youth Exchange Student to Denmark. Angie spoke to our rebounders about how her exchange experience has influenced her life, and we were able to present Angie with a YEP 9640 blazer to replace her own missing YEP blazer and to welcome her back into the YEP family.
  • District Governor Andy Rajapaske, DG Elect 21/22 Jeff Egan, and DG Elect 22/23 Karen Thomas. 
  • Rotaractors Steven Coffey, Candace Lee and Blake Foster.
  • Several rebounders from our 2016-2018 exchange student cohort.
