Japanese Exchange

Cardijn College has an established relationship with Osaka Seiko High School in Japan. Each year we are proud to host a delegation of Japanese students who have the chance to experience school and life in Australia. 

This is a somewhat unique experience and the establishment of this relationship between two Catholic secondary schools builds on our engagement with Asia and fosters a genuine intercultural understanding of our northern neighbours.

Living with a host family during their stay in Adelaide, students have the opportunity to live like a local and become immersed in the Australian culture.

The school day allows for the exchange student to experience education in an Australian context and to practice their English skills, while for our community it is a chance to broaden their understanding of the wider world and our relationships with others.
