The 22 students from Hannan University High School have spent 11 days in our school. It was a real joy to have them in our school and homes. All the Hebron homestay families I talked to thoroughly enjoyed their stay in their homes and all said they were polite, respectful and well-behaved young people. Their accompanying teachers Mr Sakajo and Mr Tatsuya, spoke highly of our school and greatly appreciated the welcome their group received and the lovely hospitality display to them. I also thanked all the Hebron families and teachers who homestayed a Hannan student – you were wonderful parents to this overseas visitors and you made a huge impact on them.
