Exchange Programs and Tours
Willetton Senior High School has a long and successful sister school relationship with the high school of the University of Hyogo. Each year, students from Willetton visit Hyogo and enjoy a two week home stay with a Japanese family. Students participate in a range of language and cultural activities as well as experience everyday life in a Japanese high school environment.
This visit is reciprocated when students and teachers from Hyogo visit Willetton SHS during August. Students spend time with ‘buddies’ at school learning about Australian school life and stay with a Willetton family for two weeks.
A relationship exists with a college in Toulouse, southern France, where Willetton SHS students experience the joys of French home and school life. Using French in every day settings is a focus of the program.
Students from Toulouse visit Willetton SHS on a reciprocal program, staying with Willetton SHS families and experiencing Australian life.
Travelling to Italy is a key part of the Italian language program. Experiencing life and travel to Rome, Venice and Florence is an exciting opportunity to use the Italian language and gain an understanding of Italy's rich history. Cultural workshops and language instruction also make up a key part of the program.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in the WAATI Intercultural Student Exchange Program each year.
