Each year, in an exchange supported by their government, a group of Danish students come to study at Kingscliff TAFE. Last Sunday, Tweed mayor Barry Longland welcomed this year’s crop, 22 students, who will live with local host families for the duration of their five-month stay, becoming involved in family activities and getting a feel for our north coast lifestyle. Among other things, students will complete an eight-week surf safety program as well as building and testing out their own boards.
Support The Echo
Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.
Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
