Hosting a student involved in a Study tour provides:
·         An enriching cultural experience not only for the student hosting but for the whole school
·         Opportunity for lifelong friendships with international students
·         Potential for students to practice social and leadership skills
·         A greater understanding and respect for those with different backgrounds, expanding our students worldwide view
Host family responsibilities include:
·         Cater for the student for the duration of their stay
·         Providing a family atmosphere and involving the students in family activities during their stay
·         Providing transport to and from school
·         Permitting host students to attend excursions that the school provides for the Nerima students
·         Attending the office Nerima Farewell dinner for host families and their guests on the last night of the tour.
The tour generally takes place towards the end of July with volunteer hosts family recruited in Term 2. A financial contribution is allocated to all host families as a thank you for welcoming into their homes the Nerima students.
