From the Assistant to Head of Campus (Issue 4 2018)
Written on the 22 March 2018
In Term 3, Sacred Heart College Marymount Campus is pleased again to be able to host a group of students from Musashino Girls' School from Sunday 29 July to Thursday 9 August. The 10 Japanese students will come to Marymount Campus every day and spend time practising English, visiting the sights of Adelaide and mixing with Marymount students. This will be a wonderful opportunity for all our students to learn about the Japanese culture and make new friends.
We are looking for some families to host the students who will be coming here. In the past, many of the families have found this to be a great experience for all. Families also receive financial reimbursement for being involved in this program. An orientation evening with families will occur prior to the Musashino students' arrival.
If you are interested in hosting a Japanese student, a current Catholic Police check (CPC) is required for all household members aged 15 years and older. These can be organised through Marymount Reception. We ask that if you are interested in hosting a student and Police Checks are required/need to be updated, that this occurs ASAP, as they do take up to 6 weeks to complete. Families are unable to host a student if Police Checks are not in place.
Thank you to the families who have already volunteered. If you are interested, please email me directly.
