The Stanthorpe/Granite Belt area is home to many Italian families and the teaching of the language has brought the Italian culture into the schools.

The High School has a sister school relationship with a high school in Cividale, in the Friuli region and the students visit on a host family basis in each country.

This year, Stanthorpe High School will host the Cividale students in July and the Italian students will return the hospitality when we travel to their city in September, before touring Italy to experience other regions and visiting the famous Italian icons.

The Italian Week producers are assisting in fundraising via these events for the Italian Immersion Students of the Stanthorpe High School.
