Seeking host families for Japanese Visitors

Gymea Technology High School has agreed to host a group of students from Oita Tokushin High School in Japan. These students will attend Gymea Technology High School from Friday 28th November to Thursday 4th December. (Students arrive at school at 9:30 am on Friday 28th November and depart school at 9:00 am on Thursday 4th December).

The students are a mix of males and females aged between 16 and 18. Their aim to experience the Australian way of life while improving their English skills. Students from all years are encouraged to apply. It is a wonderful opportunity for your family to experience a different culture first hand.

  • You do not need to be able to speak Japanese
  • You do not need to prepare different meals.
  • You will receive financial reimbursement of $204 per student for the week.

No significant changes will be required to your normal routine as the student will simply travel to and from school with your child. The visiting students will enjoy all your regular home life activities during the evenings and on the weekend.  A school organised and supervised excursion will take place during the week.

Should you be interested in hosting one or two Japanese students please return the slip to Mr Liley or Mrs Edwards or through the front office. For those families who are involved, additional information will follow. If you would like more information or have specific questions please contact Mrs Edwards on 9521 3244.
