Japanese Students Visitation

Host Families are Required For Japanese Students

We are fortunate to have 12 Japanese students visit in August. Each year a group of students from Japan make the Journey to Australia and are here with us for a period of six days, staying with families from our College.

A rough itinerary for the exchange students is:

Day 1 (Friday 31st July) –- Arrive at Whittlesea Secondary College

Welcome ceremony and lunch, host families invited.  In the afternoon, exchange students go to class with Australian host students.

Day 2 & 3 (Saturday 1st Aug & Sunday 2nd Aug) – Free days with host families

Day 4 (Monday 3rd Aug) – Exchange students attend classes with host students.

Day 5 (Tuesday 4th Aug) – Excursion to Healesville Sanctuary for exchange students and host students. (No cost to host students)

Day 6 (Wednesday 5th Aug) – Farewell ceremony and morning tea, all host families invited.

Anyone interested in being a host student/family please fill out the attached form and return to the General Office ASAP.
