The WBHS Languages  Faculty offers students the opportunity to study French and Japanese in the junior school and French, Japanese and Chinese in the senior school.

In addition to all the above, students are able to host overseas students in long and short home stay programs:-

  • Students from Tokyo, Japan (10 days).
  • Students from Hakodate, Japan (10 weeks).
  • Students from Bordeaux, France (4 weeks).

Every two years there is a 12-day school excursion to Japan that takes in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara as well as a 5 night home stay with our sister school, Suginami Gakuin.

Every two years there is a 12 day trip to France that includes Paris, the battlefields of WW2 and the Loire Valley.

All of our trips focus on places of cultural significance and the students have plenty of opportunities to put into practice the language learnt in the classroom.

These fantastic opportunities make the Language Faculty at WBHS unique in the Hunter Region.
