Safe and sound studies

BEACHES, wide open spaces and safety have attracted eight South Korean students to the Clarence Valley.

The students, who are staying with Clarence Valley residents and attending St Andrew's Christian School, are taking part in a cultural education program.

St Andrew's Christian School principal Mac Lindsay said the eight students would get to experience the region's way of life and improve their English.

"The South Korean students consider the Clarence Valley to be a safe place in the world - I think that's something we should be thankful for," Mr Lindsay said.

"Our students learn a lot from our guests' focused attitude on study.

"The South Korean students are excellent mathematicians and they love our beaches and open space."

The students will stay until late next month.
