About Réunion Island and us

Réunion Island is situated in the Indian Ocean, approximately 22 degrees South, 55 degrees East, between Mauritius and Madagascar. The flight to Mauritius takes about 8 hours with a further 45 minutes to La Réunion.

The WA/La Réunion Student Exchange, established in the early 1980s, is an annual reciprocal hosting program for students of French in WA schools and students of English in La Réunion.

We are a 100% voluntary committee of WA French teachers. They select and match students with an appropriate French applicant, provide support to the host families during the stay here and deal with organisational matters relating to the exchange. The committee also selects the Western Australian students who go on exchange to La Réunion and four committee members accompany about 40 students to La Réunion each year.
