Host Families for Japanese Students Needed Urgently!
We are still in urgent need of host families for Japanese students. The students will visit from Sunday 30 July to Saturday 12 August. They will go to classes with their host student and participate in a number of excursions. Host students will have the opportunity to participate in a couple of excursions (dates to be confirmed)
There will be a payment of $658 per student to provide 3 meals a day and any transport to and from school.
All members of the host family 18 and above need to have a Working With Children Check. A copy needs to be provided to the office. If you don’t have a Working With Children Check you can apply for one here. Please apply as a volunteer in which case there is no fee.
The students range in age from 13 to 17. You don’t have to be studying Japanese to host. It’s a great opportunity to make a new friend and learn about cool Japanese culture.
KSKK is the organisation we have organised our school trips to Japan through, so who knows; in the future maybe you can travel to Japan and meet the student you hosted!
Please contact Jessica Winstone the Languages Leader for more details and a hosting application form.
It seems a long way off, but host family arrangements need to be organised now so that we can organise excursions and confirm we have enough host families. So please return forms asap.
This is what it’s like to host a Japanese student.
You make friends.
You enjoy activities together.
You learn a lot.
So think about hosting next term.
