Outbound Japan Trip

Dear Parents/Guardians of Year 5 students (2015)
Last Wednesday (27th May), I gave a letter to the Year 5s for an "expression of interest" in a Japan trip next year (September 2016) when they are in Year 6. I have received eight expressions already, which is very exciting. Wondall Heights and Shijonawate (Osaka, Japan) have had a strong connection for a  number of years. Shijonawate students (10-11 year olds) have been visiting Wondall every year and we would like to visit their school and country every second year.  Friendships are made and memories of the cultural exchange can stay with the participants for a lifetime.
The likely cost of a 10 day trip would be approximately $3000 which includes flights, accommodation, homestay, some meals, Japan Rail Pass and probably some entry fees to such places as Disney Sea in Tokyo (some extra spending money will be needed too). 
Before commencing detailed planning, we need an indication of numbers. If you are interested in your child participating in this study tour and did not receive the letter, please email:
If we receive enough interest, we will hold an information night later in the year.
Yours sincerely
Jo Dilger
Japanese Teacher
