Congratulations to Dana Sharpe and Liam Harris who were the successful students selected to go on the Twin Towns Student Exchange Program.They will be representing the Shire of Esperance in the Ile de Ré region in France.

Dana and Liam will be off in July and they will be presenting gifts to the President of the Ile de Ré region. We wish them all the best on their adventure and we are looking forward to hearing about their experiences on their return.

Esperance’s Twin Town relationship is with the Ile de Ré region in France. Esperance’s connection to France dates back to December 1792 when the ships “L’Espérance” and “La Recherche”, commanded by Admiral D’Entrecasteaux, anchored in the bay and carried out some exploration.
