Japanese Language

Recent Posts

Fairhills High School is looking forward to our annual visit by Japanese students through our longstanding partnership with KSKK (a Japanese Government funded youth organisation).

This year the students will visit from Sunday 28 July to Saturday 10 August.

We are seeking host families for these students during this time. Requirements of host families are simple:

  1. Students may share a room with a student of the same gender, but must have their own bed
  2. All family members 18 or older must hold a current Victorian Working With Children Check. If you don’t have one you can apply at the link below. Because you would be applying as a volunteer there is no cost. https://www.vic.gov.au/working-with-children-check
  3. Provide 3 meals a day
  4. You don’t have to plan anything super expensive to do with the student. Your daily activities such as sports, family events, etc. are so different for them. We take them on a number of excursions.

Host families will be paid a stipend of $700 to help cover costs.

This is what it’s like to host a Japanese student:

  • You make friends.
  • You enjoy activities together.
  • You learn a lot.

If you are interested in hosting, or have further questions please do not hesitate to contact Jessica Winstone the Integrated Learning Area Coordinator – Languages at Jessica.Winstone@education.vic.gov.au or on 9758 5022. Application forms are available from her.
