Over the Back Fence continues to connect

Over the Back Fence, Rosmini Colleges’ Global Connections initiative, has completed 325 connections so far this year - a total of 2.8 million digital kilometres travelled.

With the northern hemisphere schools returning from their summer holidays more calls will be regularly scheduled and we hope to reach our goal of 5 million digital kilometres and 500 calls completed.  

This past week our three Seoul, South Korea partner schools were welcomed back by our year 7-8 students.

The Over the Back Fence project connects Rosmini students with students across the globe to help build global competencies, confidence and understanding. This unique project is in it’s 10th year. Last year the project made 569 connections with other schools.
