Shikaoi Student Exchange Visit
Host Families Needed - October 4 - 15
The Town of Stony Plain is making final preparations for students travelling to Stony Plain from Shikaoi, Japan. While in Stony Plain, students will stay with host families, attend classes at Memorial Composite High School and experience Canadian life. This year the student exchange program will include approximately 60 students from Shikaoi High School. Host families are still needed to accommodate two students in their home for a period of 10 days. So what’s involved in being a host family? It is opening your home, your hearts, and your minds to another culture. You do not have to know how to speak Japanese – charades and sign language work very well! The students know some English and communicate to the best of their ability.
Host Family Applications can be picked up in the school’s main office or visit www.stonyplain.com/japan
