ROTEX is a group of past exchange students and, being familiar with the exchange experience, we aim to be a friendly face for inbound students and a source of advice for outbound students. We do this by attending events such as briefings and weekends organised by the RYEP District 9685, and also by organising some fun events ourselves! We have arranged events for inbound, outbound and rebound students alike such as laser tag and dodgem cars, international food nights, picnics and barbeques. We’ve also taken group outings to Vivid, the Festival of the Winds and Sculptures by the Sea. It’s a great way to get to know all the students and give them an opportunity to see and experience things they may not have otherwise.
All in all, ROTEX is a group that can help to bridge a daunting gap between exchange students and their new country, each person involved being able to easily relate to the challenges experienced on exchange through having experienced them before. We provide an easy point of contact and, just as importantly, a safe and great way for exchange students to meet up and have fun!
