Expressions of Interest
for Students currently in
Years 9, 10 & 11 for
2020 Cultural Tour to Japan
On Monday 3rd June at 7:00pm, St Dominic’s College will be hosting a parent information evening in the Treacy Centre for parents of students interested in participating in a cultural tour of Japan in 2020. It is proposed that the tour will take place in the April school holidays 2020. The trip will be open to any student who is currently in years 9-11.
The purpose of this cultural tour is to allow students to engage in a different culture in a meaningful way, to help them gain the intercultural understanding necessary for effective engagement in an increasingly globalised world. Intercultural understanding enables students to respect their own and others’ cultures and to work and communicate with those from different cultures and backgrounds.
The proposed tour encompasses a wide range of Key Learning Areas and is intended to support students in a range of subjects being undertaken at the College. These subjects include, but are not limited to Japanese, Religious Education, History and Art. The proposed tour will include visits to culturally significant sites in Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kyoto and Osaka. The tour will also include a short home-stay with a Japanese family in Osaka with Kaimei High School who, we will be hosting in August 2019.
The parent information night will include detailed information about the proposed itinerary for the trip, costs involved and give parents an opportunity to ask any questions they may have with regard to sending their son on an overseas excursion. If you are interested in attending the information evening, please send an email with your RSVP including your sons name, year and the number of people attending to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively you can contact myself at the College on 4731 1933 (ext 184).
