Hosting a Japanese student 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!

We are looking for host families for our visiting Myojo students who will be here next year from Wednesday, 20th March 2019 through until Sunday, 31st March, 2019.  As you can see, this time they are here for a second weekend before leaving on the Sunday.

In 2019 Myojo are bringing out 20 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. However, if your child is younger than this and you would like to host, we still encourage you to put your name forward.

During Japanese lessons this week all classes will hear about the opportunity to host and be offered a form to take home to fill in. If you are interested in hosting next year please fill in this form and return it to either myself, Woodley sensei or the front office. Alternatively, you can comment on this post or contact us via email.

Arigato ~ Thank you
