Japan Trip

 

The Japan Trip is run every two years, providing senior students with an amazing experience which enriches their learning in the most meaningful way, and gives them a real opportunity to develop communication and intercultural understandings that empower them for life in a diverse Australia and a globalised world.

Students are given the fantastic opportunity to see the rich and varied culture intermingled with the modern technology that Japan is so well known for. Some highlights of the trip include a visit to our Sister School in Hyogo, exploring the history of the Peace Park in Hiroshima and Kyoto’s most famous temples, the excitement of Universal Studios in Osaka, shopping in the busy districts of Tokyo and the wonder of seeing the deer roaming freely through the streets of Nara.
