2019 and 2020 Japan trips dates change

Due to the Rugby World Cup being hosted by Japan in September 2019, and then the Summer Olympics being hosted by Tokyo in August/September 2020, Dominic College has decided to make some alterations to the way we usually schedule the Japan Study Tour in 2019 and 2020.

With high costs due to peak travel, difficulty securing bookings, and increased risks to manage, we have decided to run a combined Year 9 and 10 Japan Study Tour in April 2019.

This means that there will be no Japan Study Tour for Year 10 students in 2020. If current Year 8 students are hoping to visit Japan on the College trip, they will need to participate in the tour in April 2019.

An information session will be held on Thursday 13 September at 7.30pm in the College Library. Please attend this meeting if you are considering your child’s participation in the Japan Study Tour in April 2019.

Expression of interest forms will be handed out at this meeting and will be due back to school by Monday 15 October (first day of Term 4). Following this, an initial deposit of $500 will be required to be paid to the Business Office by Wednesday 24 October in order to secure a place on the trip.

Approximate costs will be explained at the information evening. More accurate costs will be shared with parents during the week beginning Monday 29 October, as costs vary greatly depending on the number of confirmed students.
