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 Saturday, 21 March 2020 through until Monday, 30 March, 2020.
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 2020 Myojo are bringing out 13 students, along with 4 teachers. We are looking for families to host both girls and boys. However, the number of boys coming next year has increased significantly so we are looking for more families to host boys than ever before. 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.
Some students have already received forms and others will over the next few days during Japanese lessons. If you don’t see a note and you are interested in hosting, please pop in to see us or comment on here.
