Rotary club farewells exchange student
The Rotary Club of Umina Beach has farewelled their Danish exchange student Thyra Jorgensen.
During her year with the club, Thyra has been hosted by families of members while learning about Australian history and culture and travelling around the country.
Her return flight to Denmark departed Sydney International Airport on July 6.
"Thyra has been on quite an adventure visiting most of Australia with interest and eagerness in her heart," said Club president Mr Rouel Vergara.
"Time has gone quickly for Thyra and her emotions have been up and down.
"She is looking forward to seeing her friends and family back in Denmark but is also sad to be leaving her friends and newly made families here.
"For the families who have hosted Thyra, I am sure we all share the same emotions.
"We had a ready-made daughter land on our doorstep and we have had the privilege of seeing her grow into the young adult she is today.
"Thyra's friends are making plans to try and visit her at some point in Denmark," he said.
