[Do you want to live in Japan?]
Do you love Japanese culture? Well you could have a chance to live it thanks to our sister city Eniwa in Japan!
We have an amazing opportunity for three secondary school students to go on a three week escorted Educational and Cultural Exchange to Eniwa, Japan in June 2020.
Applying is easy. You’ll need a current valid passport and permission from your parents/guardians.
You can either write us a submission (150-200 words) or do a short video (1-2 minutes) on why you would be the best person to represent our district in Japan.
Approximate airfare cost for the student is $3,000 + taxes and optional personal spending ($250-500), but travel subsidies may be available. There will be no accommodation cost as students will be home-hosted with a Japanese family.
Applications close on Friday 25 November.
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for an interview once applications close.
Whilst a knowledge of Japanese language & culture is not a pre-requisite, an affinity with Japanese culture would be an advantage.
Following the exchange the students are expected to give a presentation of their experience at a Council meeting.
