Opportunity to host a Japanese student

In March 2023, the College will be hosting students from our sister school in Osaka (Osaka International Junior High School). This is the school the College visits on our Japan Trip. The College is looking for families to host students. Students will be aged 14 and 15 but are able to be hosted by families with children of any age.  They will be here for around eight days.

We are calling for expressions of interest at this stage.  Please contact Mrs Jenny Banbury (jenny.banbury@soc.tas.edu.au) or me (hayley.mcleod@soc.tas.edu.au) via email if interested in this wonderful opportunity.
