Logan Waller gave us a brief history of his time in Denmark as a Rotary Youth Exchange student.
Waller left Canada on August 10, 2014 and returned June 30, 2015.
He was sponsored by a club in the northern part of the city of Copenhagen.
He lived with 3 different host families and it took him until about January to feel comfortable enough to speak in Danish.

He was in the equivalent of Gr 11 in Denmark taking English, French, and Music as focus subjects as well as history, Danish, geography, religion, Physical Education and drama.
The class stays together for the whole day taking all subjects together. Much more use of technology; as a result they rarely used paper.
Alcohol is sold openly at school dances and sometimes after school on Fridays.
The high-light towards the end of the year was an 18 day Eurotour.
Logan will complete Gr 12 this coming school year and then head off to university.
He thanked Rotary for such an amazing year and presented President Jack McMaster with a banner from his host club.
To get some idea of the program from a student’s perspective (meaning lots of partying) these YouTube videos may be useful.
