The Rotary Club of Glen Eira has recently coordinated a successful visit of a Student Delegation from the City of Ogaki in Japan. Ogaki and Glen Eira have a sister city relationship, as does Ogaki West Rotary with Glen Eira Rotary. The Club’s involvement followed a request made by the Ogaki International Exchange Association, during a visit by 3 club members to Ogaki’s Anniversary celebrations and Festival in May this year. The Association was keen to send 9 Ogaki Junior High School students for a 6-day visit to Glen Eira to share the school and home life of similar level Australian students. We were able to interest and involve Glen Eira City Council and the Glen Eira Secondary College to host the students on school days and to select families prepared to accommodate the visitors during their stay. Huge thanks to the Council, Glen Eira Secondary College and especially the host families for their wonderful efforts to ensure that our visitors all had memorable experiences.
