Embrace Cultural Exchange: Host a Japanese Student

Are you interested in opening your home to a Japanese student for three enriching weeks in November? The opportunity to host a student from Yamanashi Middle School is now available, and it promises to be an unforgettable experience for both your family and the visiting student. From October 29 to November 18, these 14/15-year-old students will be exploring the beautiful Sunshine Coast and GCC, and they are eagerly seeking warm and welcoming families to host them during their stay.

The Homestay Experience

Yamanashi Middle School’s students are excited to immerse themselves in Australian culture and family life. As a host family, you have the chance to provide them with an authentic experience they will cherish forever. Whether you are a seasoned host or considering it for the first time, this is an excellent opportunity to connect with a young individual from another part of the world.

Accommodation Preferences

The visiting students prefer double placements when possible, meaning they would share their Australian adventure with another student from their group. For your hospitality, you will receive $100 per night for hosting both students. If you prefer a single placement, where you host just one student, you will still receive a payment of $50 per night.

A Well-Structured Program

During their stay, the Japanese students will be attending school from Monday to Friday, sharing the daily routine with their host families. A pre-planned program has been designed to ensure that they make the most of their time in the Sunshine Coast and GCC. This program will not only enrich their educational experience but also introduce them to the local culture, community, and way of life.
