Welcome to the Fujimi Exchange 2012

A big, warm-hearted Ozzie welcome to all the staff and students from our sister-school in Tokyo, Fujimi High School. "John XXIII College e yookoso!"

On Sunday 29th July we will be meeting 2 teachers from Fujimi High School, Mr Ryooji Nishizawa and Ms Kana Miura, a representative from JTB, Ms Yoko Yamazaki and 35 students.

The students are here to get a taste of life in Australia! Thanks to the generous hospitality and support of all of our host families, our Japanese visitors will be going right to the heart of our life in Perth - our homes! They will also be attending school each day and we have organized a very busy schedule for them over the next two weeks, including a range of classes with Year 5, Year 9 and Year 10. They will also get an opportunity to participate in excursions to Kings Park, the city of Perth and Fremantle and Caversham Wildlife Park followed by mini-golf in the Swan Valley.

A big thanks from the Language Department to all the College staff and families for helping to make this a wonderful experience for all concerned.
