Japanese Program exchange opportunities
Shelford enjoys a close relationship with its Japanese sister school. Each year in August a group of students from Edogawa Girls' High, our Tokyo sister school, visits for a week. The Japanese girls participate in numerous activities in Junior School and Senior School classes, providing wonderful opportunities for the Shelford students to interact, practise their language skills and learn more about Japan and its people.
A long- term student exchange program has also been established with Edogawa Girls' High, which is a large private girls' school. Every year Shelford hosts one Edogawa student for one year. This student will typically undertake a Year 11 course. Shelford Year 10 students of Japanese have the opportunity to travel to Edogawa, undertaking a seven week homestay and attending Edogawa High School in December and January. Information about this exchange opportunity is provided directly to the Year 10 students.
