Host families required for Japanese homestay visit in 2023

We are so thrilled to announce that we will be able to re-start the homestay programme with our sister school, Sagami Women's University Elementary School in Japan next year. The proposed dates for the tour to our school are from 27 July to 2 August, 2023. We are anticipating that 18 students from Sagami will be part of the homestay program. 

We are looking for host families while the Japanese students are visiting our school. If you are interested in getting involved, please email me directly. I can guarantee that it will be a fantastic opportunity.  We will start the official process in February 2023. 

There is also the possibility of a trip from PSSS to Sagami later in 2023, although there are still some restrictions in place to visit Japan.​
