Saint Rita and Saint Augustine's College (all boy secondary school) in Sydney, Australia have organized a student exchange program during 2013-2014.  Patrick and Justin and their families are the hosts to our two Australian students for the next month.   Both of the schools are Catholic Augustinian and all boy's schools.  Max and Harry will attend classes at Saint Rita with their hosts as well as experience downtown Chicago and attend the student life activities/sports while at Saint Rita.   We will then look forward to sending Patrick and Justin to Sydney, Australia next May to spend several weeks with the families there.   It is a great opportunity for all of these students, who are connected through their Augustinian schools and will experience first hand one another's school communities and traditions.  This travel student exchange program has been in place at Saint Rita for a number of years.  We hope to offer other exchange programs through Augustinian schools in other countries in the future.
