The time of year has come around again and we are looking for host families for our visiting Myojo students who will be here from Tuesday, 20 March 2018 through until Thursday, 29 March, 2018. Their departure day is the Thursday before the 4 day Easter break.
We have always had wonderful support for our homestay program. We thank those families who have hosted students and who are now leaving us, as their youngest child moves on to high school.
Hosting is a wonderful experience for your family. It is an opportunity to have first hand exposure to Japanese people and culture as well as share Australian life with a Japanese student, offering them a memorable Australian experience. And we pay you as well!
In 2018 Myojo are bringing out 21 students, along with 4 teachers. Last year we had excellent support and some families unfortunately missed out on the experience. If you were one of the families who offered to host last year but missed the opportunity, it would be a good time to put your family’s name forward again. If you have not hosted but are interested in finding out more, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Next year we will be seeking to place these students in Yr 4 -7 classes for their time at school.
Students will receive forms in the coming week during Japanese lessons. If you don’t see them and you are interested in hosting, please pop in to see us or comment on here.
