Through relaxed conversation with their mentors, students get to practice their English language skills and learn more about our Australian customs, manners, sport, culture, current affairs and so on.

We at Echohill Vineyard have carefully matured some fabulous Chardonnay and Shiraz since 2012, and to help out some of the many people that are suffering hardship from the COVID19 virus we are offering the chance to acquire these wines that normally sell for $200 per case (and are rated 90-92 by James Halliday) to you for only $50 per case, delivered to your door (Sydney Area Only). All proceeds after delivery costs will go straight to the Community Northern Beaches to help support their Homeless Outreach Program.
