MARGARET River Senior High School hosted visitors from Singapore on Thursday during their whirlwind one-week trip to Australia.

The 20 students and three teachers sat in some of the morning classes and enjoyed meeting others before checking out the school's farm.

MRSHS language teacher Angela McCoy said the group came to compare Australian culture with their own.

Teachers Jayne and Lynn Ng said they enjoyed their stay, especially due to the relaxed lifestyle.

"The slow-paced life here is so different from Singapore. There, everywhere you go, you plan what to do next. Here, you can just go for a walk and make it up as you go along," Jayne said. The group travelled to Fremantle and flew back to Singapore on Friday.
