Japanese Exchange Program
As an extension of our Japanese language studies we have implemented a cultural relations program with Jissen Gakuen Junior and Senior High School in Tokyo. As our sister school, we welcome a group of secondary students into our school for a two-week homestay program every year. This did not occur in 2020-2021 due to Covid but is due to recommence in the future. Currently on hold.
In 2016 we completed our first own Japanese Exchange Trip. This involved a multi-day homestay with school visits and interesting learning experiences, and a trip around the country visiting important historical and cultural sites. This was for students studying Japanese in Yrs 10-12 and they did fundraising in the lead up to it to help with costs.
Our Japanese exchange program enriches the lives of all students at the College by providing them with an opportunity to learn about another culture.
