Host Families for Japanese Exchange Students

One of the strengths of the Japanese program at Swan Christian College is that our students have many opportunities to interact with Japanese people. This year, we have an opportunity to host students from Musashidai High School and Hojo High School in Japan. 

We are currently seeking families who would like to host a student during this visit in Term 3. (31 July - 7 August and 13 August – 21 August). During this time, the students will stay with a host family, participate in College life and attend various cultural excursions. 

By hosting an exchange student your family gains a unique insight into a culture that differs from ours in many ways. In fact, hosting an exchange student is the best way to experience another culture without having to the leave the country!  Exchange is always a two-way process and there are many benefits to both parties involved. 

If you would like to welcome another member into your family and can provide a bed and meals for a student please contact Ms Knoblich on 9374 8381 or trishk@scea.wa.edu.au. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Drama Across the College

Swan Christian College has recently had two very different productions, both that displayed the skills and talent of our students.

In Week 7 was the Whole College production of Wind in the Willows, with students from Years 4 – 12. It told the classic story of Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger by Kenneth Grahame. The students performed five shows over three days, and the show was very well received by the audiences.

Highlights from the show included a Christmas Carol from the Junior School Choir, and a tap dance from Jarrett Walton as Toad. The cast and crew are very grateful to all those who supported the show, keep your ears out for our next production!

In Week 9, the Year 12 Drama class performed their production of Antigone, a classic Greek tragedy written by Sophocles in 441BC. The class re-interpreted the text into a dystopian, post-apocalyptic time and place.

The Year 10 Drama class, who performed as the chorus using technology that supported the interpretation of the play, supported the Year 12 students. 

The two night’s performances demonstrated a sophisticated understanding of the text, the tragic figure’s journey, and how physical theatre can interpret meaning and engage an audience. 

The drama students are grateful for those who came and supported their work
