TWO Murgon State High School students will embark on a journey to New Zealand instead of attending schoolies.

Jessica and Casey Rynne will travel south on November 30 as part of the Lions Club exchange program.

Principal Greg Smith said the girls will stay with a number of families during their trip.

"They will also be invited to attend Lions meetings and speak to the New Zealand Lions on life in Murgon," he said.

The girls will return on January 8.
