We are looking for expressions of interest from families able to host a Japanese student for Term 3.
The College has accepted 4 short-term students from Japan to join our community for a cultural and language development experience. The girls are aged 15 – 17 years and are capable, enthusiastic and very excited about the prospect of learning more about Australia.
Families who have previously hosted short-term students speak very fondly of the shared experience, new understandings and friendships.
"We made such a connection with our student that she didn’t want to go home to Japan. She is already planning to come back for a holiday. We chat daily via Instagram messages.“
“I would highly recommend this experience as it had a very positive impact on our family and we feel very fortunate to have met and made a new life-long friend.”
We believe this can be a special opportunity for families, creating lifetime stories and memories for everyone involved.
For your information:
- The girls will join a mix of mainstream and English classes and excursion activities.
- Students from all Year levels are welcome to apply.
- A single bedroom is preferred, but not essential.
- An allowance will be paid to families to cover the costs of hosting the student.
To register your interest, please email Kylie Lee, Registrar by Monday 13 May.
