International Trips

Noumea 

An opportunity to travel to Noumea, New Caledonia. 
Students spend seven days investigating the culture, learning to speak French and sightseeing.  The cost for this is approximately $2500.

Visiting Japan 

An opportunity to visit Japan, stay with a local family, attend a Japanese school, sightsee in and around Tokyo for 14 days, including Disney Land, Disney Sea, Toyota Megaweb, and museums.  Students do not need to be able to speak Japanese, as students at Makuhari High School learn English. This trip takes place in late September and the cost for this is approximatley $3500.  A meeting for those interested is held early Term 1.

Hosting Japanese Students

There are several opportunities when we ask families to host Japanese students who come to Maeroa.  They are usually here for about two weeks and hosting families are paid a small fee to cover costs of food and activities. These opportunities are advertised through the school newsletter.
