Seeking a host family for a Japanese Assistant Teacher


​Seeking a Cairns High family to host our Japanese Assistant Teacher.

As part of our Languages program, we have the opportunity to invite native-speaking Japanese volunteers to work with teachers and students in our classrooms. The support of these volunteers is incredibly important to our program and we are very fortunate to be able to secure high-quality bilingual applicants through the WEP program.

In order to keep these high-quality volunteers, we need the support of Cairns High families to offer them a room and board. Please urgently consider whether your family will host an assistant teacher we can then accept applications. Duration of stay ranges from two weeks to a full term and is an excellent way to expose your family to a different culture, perhaps even making a lifelong friend.

Hosting WEP volunteers is unpaid, although volunteers are expected to assist in household chores and with student tutoring for homework and study.

If you are able to host an assistant language teacher during Term 2-4, please contact Morimoto Sensei on or phone 4050 3016.
