The Land of the Rising Sun is calling…..


On Monday, 8th August at 6:00pm, St Dominic’s College will be hosting a Parent Information Evening in the Lecture Theatre for parents of students interested in participating in a cultural tour of Japan in 2023. It is proposed that the tour will take place in the April 2023 school holidays. The trip will be open to any student who will be in years 9-12 in 2023.


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 will include visits to culturally significant sites in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hiroshima, as well as a short homestay with a Japanese family and a visit to a Japanese school.


The parent information night will include detailed information about the proposed itinerary for the trip, the costs involved and give parents an opportunity to ask any questions they may have regarding sending their son on an overseas excursion. If you are interested in attending the information evening, please complete the online form below to RSVP. Alternatively, you can email me at
