Cultural Exchange Programs

Shoji Australia Partnered Exchange Programs

Shoji Australia began a partnership with John Forrest Secondary College in 1999. They operate as a licensed travel agent, education agent and tour operator, specialising in travel to and from Japan.

Shoji Australia has been assisting John Forrest with inbound and outbound tours with Koshigaya Senior High School in Japan. They have also placed volunteer assistant teachers within our College on internship programs.

The partnership has been successful and has included:

  • coordination of ten inbound tours with Koshigaya Nishi Senior High School.
  • five outbound tours with Koshigaya Nishi Senior High School.
  • several one day visits from other schools.
  • several cultural exchange internships.

These tours give students the opportunity to experience home and school life in another culture and have been overwhelmingly positive.

AIIU/Torei Fujisawa High School Partnership
Torei Fujisawa High School was hosted by John Forrest Secondary College in a successful exchange in 2014. The exchange was coordinated by AIIU who organise cultural and study tours to and from Japan. We are looking forward to Torei Fujisawa students' planned visit in 2015.
