The Thistle - An E-Newsletter of Scotch College, Perth, Western Australia

Host Family Opportunity

On 5 - 13 August, we will be hosting a visit from our sister school in Indonesia, Al-Izhar, a private school in Jakarta with whom Scotch has an ongoing relationship. We have visited their school during the study tours in 2013 and in 2015. They have always welcomed our students participating in the tour with open arms, as I am sure they will do during our next study tour next year. This year we are looking forward to returning the favour as their students visit Perth and Scotch College in particular.

We are putting out a call for Scotch parents who would be willing to host one of the seven boys from Al-Izhar. The visit will be a great opportunity for cultural exchange, as well as language exchange with native speakers. It will of course afford the Al-Izhar students an opportunity to immerse themselves in Australian culture. The visit will also allow Scotch students a very valuable chance for a first-hand encounter with Indonesian culture and, of course, a rare opportunity for your son to practise their Indonesian with a native speaker.
