Host a Study Tour Student

Early in Term 3 we will be hosting 15 students from Kyoto, Japan, and we are seeking families to host a student.  Hosting an international student is a wonderful way of getting to know, understand and appreciate each other’s cultures, customs and traditions and forging lifelong friendships with your student and her family.  If you would like to engage in this experience please contact the school on 8272 8233 to register your interest by Friday 31 May.
