Naga High School - Sister School Visit 2015
Our College is currently hosting students and staff from our sister school, Naga High School in Japan. This visit provides our community with the opportunity to welcome our friends and to share educational, cultural and to develop close and meaningful connections. The 29 students and 3 teachers have so far enjoyed visiting the various campuses, a trip to the Back Creek Farm, as well as other places of interest in our surrounding area.
I am extremely grateful to the families who have generously opened their homes to host our visitors. The highly successful program that has supported these exchange opportunities over the past 23 years relies on the goodwill of families in each of the host countries to enable these visits to occur.
Our College is aiming to provide all of our students with experiences that will expand their awareness of their place in the world as global citizens and to see the student's competencies growing as a result. In addition to our connection with Japanese families, Christian College students also have opportunities to participate in visits to Indonesia, East Timor, Vietnam, Cambodia as well as the trips to indigenous communities in Central Australia.
Over the recent term break a number of the College Prefects visited Viqueque in East Timor and have returned with incredible memories of their experience. The prefects are conducting a 'Trivia Night' in order to raise funds in support of programs in our friendship village. I encourage you to support them by attending or contributing to this event.
