• EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED as of 3/16/2020.


    Hello Everyone!

    This year Chiawana High School has the privilege to host about 40 Japanese students from Yamate Gakuin High School on April 10th, 2020 - April 24, 2020.  During their stay, the students from Yamate will attend school and participate in school activities.  

    We are looking for families that would be interested in hosting a pair of students in their home for those 2 weeks.  The students will arrive from Japan on the afternoon of April 10, 2020 and will live with you for the two weeks of their visit.  The students will stay in pairs to make their experience a little less stressful.  

    Hosting these students consists of a welcoming home, transportation to and from school, meals (lunch included), and a bed to sleep on.

    THANK YOU for those of you who have expressed interest to host these wonderful students.  We are still in need of finding more host families!!

    If you would be interested in hosting a pair of students or would like more information, please sign up via the attached website.  If you have troubles with the website, feel free to email me or call me at ext.5562.
