2013 Mino Gakuen Japanese High School VisitMino Gukuen

15 students and 1 teacher (Mr Ryohei Tajima) from Mino Gakuen High School, Osaka, Japan, arrived at our school on Tuesday afternoon and are now all billeted with Hebron families. They are enjoying their English language studies every morning in Room 15 and their teacher tells us they love the contact they are having with the Hebron buddies.

In fact Mr Tajima likes our school so much he wants to establish a sister school relationship and have our students visit Japan. perhaps we may do this when, one day, we bring on a second language, perhaps Japanese!

The students joined our Year 13 students and went ice skating at the Paradise Ice Rink in Avondale this afternoon.

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.
