NEWS BMLSS FUNDRAISER …
HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR YOUR STUDENT PROGRAM
From October 14th to October 22ND BMLSS will be hosting 54 Japanese high school students. This will be our second year of hosting this student group in our community.
The visitors are 14-15 year old girls and boys from Yokohama Soei Junior High School in Japan. During the week, they will be participating in a program at BMLSS, consisting of ESL classes and a variety of cultural activities.
As well as their school program, a very important component of the students’ experience is their time outside of school. This is where YOU come in
HOW YOU CAN HELP
In order to help raise money, we hope our families will welcome a Japanese student into their home from October 14th to October 22nd
For each host from the BMLSS community, our school will receive $50 for hosting. As well, we are respectfully asking that host families donate all, or a portion of, the allotted $216 compensation for hosting to really raise funds for BMLSS.
This would bring in anywhere from $1750 to $10000 for our students!
BMLSS is very excited to welcome these visitors into our school for the second year of this new October tradition! By hosting ONE student for the duration of the program, your family will be participating in:
- A major fundraiser for our school and our students
- An amazing opportunity for students to learn from another culture through a Japanese-Canadian buddy exchange
- An opportunity to create lifelong friendships
