 next step in our James Hargest College students’ education.
 The 2019 Year 9’s will meet in the atrium at 8.50am, where the Junior Campus council and Year 8 teachers will lead the students
 up the road to be welcomed onto the Senior Campus.

International News
Open Your Home to an International Student

            iles, language, and cultural differences sometimes make us feel worlds apart from

home, school, and throughout the community, you will learn how close together “worlds
apart” can really be.
Build lifelong friendships with a family from across the globe through your student.

Learn New Cultures
Introduce your family to a new language, new foods and music, and an entirely new culture.

Gain a New Perspective
See “your” world with fresh eyes as you share experiences with and learn from someone
from across the globe.

Make a Difference

throughout the community.
