On the evening of Monday, June 12, there was a meeting for parents of NZ short-term exchange students (homestay) in the library.  Our school has had a sister school relationship with Kaikorai Valley College in the South Island of NZ since 1988.  Since then, we have been conducting inter-school exchange and homestay programs.

We offer both one-year and short-term study programs (one-week homestay + sightseeing) held every summer.  This year, 12 students from the junior and senior high schools are supposed to participate in the short-term study program, which had been suspended by Covid-19.

So far, more than 500 students from our school, both long term and short term, have crossed the ocean to study English and other cultures in NZ.  We are very much looking forward to seeing what the exchange program will be like after 3 years.
