As part of our Japanese exchange program, Modbury High School welcomes 15 students and two teachers from the city of Asakuchi in Japan each year. The Japanese students are hosted by Modbury High School students for 6 days in August.
The exchange students take part in some lessons and cultural experiences offered at the school, as well as participate in various excursions around Adelaide. They learn about our school life, customs and our way of life.
In return, Modbury High School students travel to Japan each year in the September school holidays. A reciprocal home stay of four days occurs in Asakuchi city while the rest of the two weeks is spent travelling around Japan, learning about their culture and practising their Japanese language.
Modbury High School students have the opportunity to learn about Japanese culture from their guests, and to experience traditional foods, customs and visit a range of traditional and modern Japanese cities.
Modbury High School students will, most importantly be able to practise their Japanese language. This will be a significant benefit for their futures – in both their language studies and chosen career paths.
