Meet Nikkie Harper, a primary teacher in Australia, who is seeking a teacher exchange in Canada:

Our family is seeking an exchange to Canada in 2020. This will involve me coming to your job and your house in late December/ early January 2020 for the year. In exchange, you will have our house and my job at Emmaus Christian School Canberra. The exchange would be organised through the ACT/NSW Independent Education Union. For more details: https://www.ieu.asn.au/teacher-exchange. This organization sponsors you to come to Australia and assists in organising the relevant paperwork etc. There are lots of tax deductions available too!

About me

My name is Nikkie and I am a Junior Primary teacher at Emmaus Christian School Canberra, Australia. I am a wife to Andrew and a mother of 2 children, Chloe aged 10 and Cameron aged 8.

**About Emmaus **

Emmaus Christian School Canberra was established in 1997 and has since sustained a focus on building strong community through engaging partnerships between home and school. By providing a Christian education, the school enters into partnerships with parents who desire their children to be equipped with a biblical world view - a set of presuppositions that views the world through Biblical truths. (Romans 12:2 and 2 Corinthians 10:5). Being a gospel-shaped community, Christian education at Emmaus is shown through the delivery of a Christ-centered curriculum and a teaching and learning program delivered by staff who submits all of life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

We are a school that caters for children from preschool - year 10 with around 350 students. It is a very community minded school and you would immediately feel welcome.
