Host fam­i­lies needed

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch -

FAM­I­LIES are needed to host in­ter­na­tional ex­change stu­dents.

Gold In­ter­cul­tural Learn­ing is or­gan­is­ing sev­eral Ja­panese ex­change trips this month and is “des­per­ately seek­ing” more fam­i­lies to help.

The ex­change with St Mark’s Angli­can Com­mu­nity School in Hillarys will run from March 23 to 30, while the ex­change with St James’ Angli­can School in Alki­mos is from March 23 to 31.

“Ev­ery­one is wel­come to host and you don’t have to have a child study­ing at the school,” home­s­tay co-or­di­na­tor Sally Tam said.

“It is as sim­ple as in­volv­ing your stu­dent in your daily rou­tine – in­vite them to join you when you take the dog for a walk, at­tend dance prac­tice or make din­ner. As a host you will re­ceive a visit from our friendly staff, 24-hour bilin­gual sup­port and pay­ment.”

Ms Tam said ex­change pro­grams were about de­vel­op­ing “in­quir­ing, knowl­edge­able and car­ing young peo­ple who help to cre­ate a bet­ter world through in­ter­cul­tural un­der­stand­ing and re­spect”.
