[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 Hokkaido!
We’re looking for three secondary school students to go on a three week escorted Educational and Cultural Exchange to Eniwa, Hokkaido, Japan in June or early July 2019.
Applying is easy, you’ll need a current valid passport and permission from your parents and preference is given those both reside and attend a Timaru District High School.
You can either write us a piece (150-200 words) on why you would be the best person to represent our district in Japan along with a current photo.
Approx airfare cost to the student $3000 + taxes and optional personal spending ($250-500). There will be no accommodation cost as you will be home-hosted with a Japanese family.
Applications close on Friday 23 November. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for an interview at end of November 2018. Whilst a knowledge of Japanese language & culture is not a pre-requisite, an affinity with Japanese culture would be an advantage.
