Thursday night was anther lovely night where over 100  children, parents and staff enjoyed a BBQ dinner together with our Myojo visitors.  Thanks to our host families, who are extremely generous with their time and care for the children they are hosting.  We thank you for your involvement in this very rewarding experience.

This experience would not be possible if it wasn’t for the work of Sarah Vinall, who has again done a fantastic job with the organisation of this years home stay program.  Sarah has liaised with our Japanese colleagues; ensured our HomeStay arrangements are in order; coordinated the  placement of Myojo students in classes; worked closely with the host teachers to ensure we have an enjoyable and memorable experience for visiting staff as well as visiting students. While our visitors are here, Sarah ensures our visitors know what they need to be doing and where they need to be. Yes it is a busy, but hugely rewarding week. Keiko Yoshino has supported Sarah throughout the process.

We thank our host teachers too for their efforts in classes to design learning activities to include the Myojo students and in hosting Myojo staff.  Many of those teachers have had Myojo students and/or staff for the 11 years Myojo has been visiting.
